Mattress Firm, Inc. v. Sleepy's

In a dispute involving the two largest mattress and bedding retailers in the U.S., Sleepy’s sought a preliminary injunction in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York to prevent our client, Mattress Firm, from opening MattressPro branded stores in the Carolinas and other mid-Atlantic states. Sleepy’s claimed that our client’s MattressPro mark infringes its registered mark, The Mattress Professionals. Our team handled extensive expedited discovery, including depositions in New York, Florida and Texas, and defeated the Sleepy’s motion for preliminary injunction. Sleepy’s has appealed the district court’s decision denying a preliminary injunction to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and we are defending the lower court’s decision on appeal.
