Scentsy, Inc. v. Performance Manufacturing, Inc. et al.: Parsons Behle successfully defended a packaging systems equipment manufacturer against allegations of misappropriation of trade secrets and trade dress infringement in a lawsuit filed in the District of Idaho.  The case settled favorably after Parsons Behle helped its client defeat the plaintiff’s motion for a temporary restraining order.
