U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan in Manhattan ordered Caballero Video to stop selling 10 DVD titles in its “Ben & Cherry's” series and to remove references to the products from the Internet.
Kaplan issued his temporary restraining order one day after Ben & Jerry's sued Caballero, accusing the North Hollywood, California-based company of trademark infringement.
Ben & Jerry's sued over the sales of such titles as “Boston Cream Thighs,” “Chocolate Fudge Babes” and “Peanut Butter D-Cups,” which it said were rip-offs of its Boston Cream Pie, Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Peanut Butter Cup flavors.
