Israel Magistrate Court Throws Out Family Dissagreement, Ruling that IP Related Issues Takes it Out of His Jurisdiction

M. Delicious Food Manufacturing and Marketing LTD. has requested an injunction against Quality and Interantional Taste LTD, Rivka Malchi. Binayamin Hesishina and Calculated Manufacturing and Marketing of Foods LTD. to prevent the defendants from using its name. On the basis of the owner of the plaintiff being a brother-in-law of the second defendant, the defendants claimed that the Tel Aviv Magistrates Court was the wrong forum and that the case should be heard by the family court.

Judge Harel rejected this position, but noted that due to the IP related issues, the correct forum was the District Court and cancelled the case, awarding the defendants costs of 5000 NIS+VAT.
