Nike Seeks Injunction Preventing Cricketer From Breaching Endorsement Deal
Posted on Jan 01, 2016
In a story that broke earlier today, August 21, it was reported that Nike has secured an injunction against Indian cricket player, Virat Kohli, barring him from moving forward to vet new potential endorsement deals, because he is still under his exclusive endorsement contract with Nike through the end of 2014.
According to the story, the judge issued a temporary restraining order, or "TRO," freezing the status quo, at least until a further hearing in roughly one month.
This story is a good reminder about when seeking injunctive relief is proper, and how it can - and should - be used to protect your turf.
