Palladium Books received a response from the court today about Palladium’s request for a temporary restraining order against Trion Worlds for their use of the term “Rift.” Palladium argued that an upcoming computer trade show in Los Angeles(E3, I am assuming) appearance of Trion’s Rift game would damage Palladium’s trademark. The judge ruled against Palladium’s request for the restraining order. However, he did schedule a hearing about the preliminary injunction next week. I read the document and it sounds like the judge wants both parties in court to discuss the restraining order before rendering a decision.
I will post after the injunction hearing information enters the system, probably around June 10-11, 2010.
Here is the full document for your examination.
