Theses are other legal reasons beyond and with regards the "fraudulently obtained" Firehouse Subs Trademark Portfolio;
"FULL & FAIR OPPORTUNITY TO LITIGATE":
Over the years, Firehouse Subs has been provided the "full and fair opportunity to litigate" many times over concerning their entire Trademark Portfolio that uses the common word “FIREHOUSE”. In Federal Court and in before TTAB Firehouse Subs did in fact present pictures of all their Trademarks “collectively, the marks” from 1999 to 2016. In every litigation alongside EVERY Firehouse Subs Trademark “the marks” in their Trademark Portfolio using the word “FIREHOUSE” were detailed in the Claims brought to the US Federal District Court, Florence SC. _Co-Founder, Robin Sorensen in concert with Attorney, Richard Vermut since 1999 to present EVERYTIME implemented a "sue-to-settlement" legal posture.
This unethical "sue-to-settlement" posture by Co-Founder, Robin Sorensen in concert with Attorney, Richard Vermut was very easy to employ since many if not all small business owners did not have the money (Hundreds of Thousands) require to legally fight the lawsuit brought by Firehouse Subs to a conclusion. _Remembering, it cost Cali Bakers / Capt Heath Scurfeild Hundreds of Thousands in Federal Court to legally fight until 2011 and then Firehouse Subs, Co-Founder, Robin Sorensen in concert with Attorney, Richard Vermut went on and tried to knock Cali Bakers / Capt Heath Scurfeild to the financial canvas by filing an expensive Appeals Court action regarding the lower court unanimous Jury Verdict.
SUPERSEDING FULL FAITH AND CREDIT:
The rule of 28 U.S.C. §§ 1738-1739 pertains not merely to recognition by state courts of the records and judicial proceedings of courts of sister States but to recognition by “every court within the United States,” including recognition of the records and proceedings of the courts of any territory or any country subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. The federal courts are bound to give to the judgments of the state courts the same faith and credit that the courts of one State are bound to give to the judgments of the courts of her sister States.
