Plaintiff Epic Tech, LLC filed suit against Defendant Spinx Games Limited on May 23, 2022 in the Northern District of Georgia (Atlanta Division).

See Ex. A. In bringing this action, Plaintiff alleges that since at least December 2020 Defendant Spinx Games Limited has used and continues to use the title “CASH BASH” to market and distribute its own mobile social casino games to users in the United States via multiple online platforms, notwithstanding Defendant’s knowledge and awareness of Plaintiff’s federally-registered, incontestable mark.
