Houston College of Law

Summary: South Texas College of Law has been asked by a federal judge to hold off on changing their name until legal battle is solved.

A federal judge in Houston has ordered South Texas College of Law to refrain from changing their name to Houston College of Law until the legal battle with the University of Houston is resolved. The temporary injunction was given by U.S. District Judge Keith Ellison on Friday on the grounds that Houston College of Law is too similar to the University of Houston and University of Houston Law Center.

Ellison noted that the resemblance between the names could be “a substantial threat of irreparable injury” if action by the courts was not taken. The two schools are in the midst of a civil trademark lawsuit brought by the University of Houston’s Regents. They argue that the new name and the same red and white color scheme will confuse consumers. Houston College of Law argues that UH rarely uses their “College of Law” name.

An October 19 hearing for the two law schools has been set to discuss how to implement the injunction. The school has been using the new name since May.

South Texas College of Law was established 93 years ago. Their effort to rebrand themselves has seen other setbacks. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office suspended their application for a special logo with the scales of justice and the new name for the law school.
