McAllen ISD and IDEA Charter Didn’t Commit Trademark Infringement

Ruling: “Read a million words” (and similar) student reading incentive programs — offered by an ISD and a charter to their students only — did not infringe upon a corporation’s registered trademarks. Springboards to Education, Inc., v. McAllen ISD (No. 21-40333) and IDEA Public Schools (No. 21-40334). Issued March 8 by the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. (Combined decision, ordered “published.”)

It was also affirmed — in this Fifth Circuit decision — that Texas ISDs and charters lack “sovereign immunity” protections against being sued in federal court by individuals (which could include corporations).
