For the second time since September, a Federal Judge denied Adidas subsidiary TaylorMade’s attempt to dismiss Pixl Golf’s claims against TaylorMade. The Orders on September 27, 2002, and December 13, 2002, ruled that Pixl Golf’s claims of fraud, misappropriation of confidential information, breach of confidence, and declaration of inventorship as well as Pixl Golf’s claims for punitive damages must go to a jury for trial.
Bob Zider, Pixl’s Chairman, said, “Obviously, we are very pleased, but not surprised by this outcome. It has taken over two years to reach this point and now we look forward to a Jury decision.”
Pixl anticipates a trial date will be set soon for sometime in the spring/summer of this year.
Pixl Golf is a privately held company. TaylorMade Golf is a subsidiary of Adidas.
