Camellia Grill to keep its name
NEW ORLEANS - A federal judge says the current owner of the Camellia Grill restaurant is the rightful possessor of the popular New Orleans' eatery's name.
The judge denied claims from the restaurant's former owner that the name and other trademarks were not transferred in a sale nearly nine years ago.
The judge found the bill of sale gives Uptown Grill rights to all Camellia Grill trademarks that were on file with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office when the transaction was completed.
The popular diner is known for its menu of comfort foods, such as oversized omelets and cheeseburgers.
The former owner argued the restaurant was allowed to continue operating as Camellia Grill only because of a licensing agreement.
