    DOUGLAS DYNAMICS, L.L.C. ORDERED TO WITHDRAW CERTAIN ADVERTISING CLAIMS UNTIL TRIAL​


    On February 15, 2012, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin granted a preliminary injunction relating to certain Douglas Dynamics (Fisher/Western v-snowplow) advertisements. The Court made a preliminary finding that, subject to final determination of the merits of the parties’ claims, statements that “the BOSS Power V-XT v-blade cannot trip in the V or scoop mode” and certain statements claiming or implying that users of blade-trip plows will be physically injured but users of Fisher/Western edge-trip plows will not were literally false. Accordingly, as preliminary ordered by the Court, Douglas Dynamics withdraws those advertising claims.
