A JOKE: HANA GETS $300K BECAUSE THE DEFENDANT DIDN'T RESPOND
The community is in a uproar about Hana Modz getting a $300,000.00 settlement for a vendor using their logo on a clone. The REASON Hana Modz won is because the defendant didn't respond and the judge gave the win to the plaintiff. This has nothing to do with the merits of the case, but simple court proceedings.
If someone sues you - FIGHT!
Excerpt from the Court Order:
"After Defendant failed to respond, the Clerk entered default on October 8,
2014. (Entry of Default, ECF No. 7.) On January 5, 2015, Plaintiff filed this Motion
for Default Judgment."
If you don't respond - the person suing you automatically wins.
In my opinion this does not set any precedent because the merits of the case were never fought in court.
