On March 5, 2010, The Firm of Greenberg and Lieberman, LLC., led by Attorneys Stevan Lieberman and Debora McCormick, joined by local counsel Jonathan Westreich, completed a three day trial to adjudicate the intellectual property infringement matters brought before the court by Dr. McMillan. On March 17, 2010, the Court entered an Order which found that Thomas Winkler, the Defendant and former employee of Dr. McMillan, never had any ownership interest in Plaintiffs trademarks, "No matter how many Years and How Many Fears, It's Time for You to Smile Easy," "Burkedentists.com," and "SmileEasy.com." Further the court clarified that the trademarks are and always have been assets of Alex McMillan IV, DDS, P.C., and that Thomas Winkler deliberately and intentionally misappropriated the practice's trade secrets.
The Court Ordered Thomas Winkler to execute an assignment assigning all contested trademarks to Dr. McMillan and further ordered him to destroy all copies of a disputed patient list that the court determined was stolen from Dr. McMillan.
