No ‘mini trial’ at interim injunction stage

The division bench of Delhi High Court, in its judgment dated 24 January 2019, upheld the single judge’s order refusing interim injunctions against the use of similar designs of Crocs footwear.

Various suits were filed by Crocs (the plaintiff) for infringement of its registered designs (No.197685 and No.197686) against several defendants. Earlier, the single judge had granted ex parte ad interim injunctions, and subsequently defendants challenged the proceedings and also applied for the vacation of ex parte orders.
