Skadden was featured in a Law360 article for securing a victory for Fresh Del Monte Produce, Inc. in a jury trial against Del Monte Foods Co. in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. On April 6, 2012, after a two-week trial, the jury found that Fresh Del Monte had the exclusive right under the parties' contract to use the Del Monte trademark on certain refrigerated preserved fruit. The jury also returned a verdict in favor of Fresh Del Monte on five out of six Lanham Act false advertising claims.
