J&J, Red Cross resolve lawsuit

June 18, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Johnson & Johnson and the American Red Cross have resolved a lawsuit over the use of their shared red-and-white symbol.

The deal comes after a federal judge tossed out most of health-products maker J&J's lawsuit, upholding the Red Cross' right to use the emblem. The judge said the Red Cross also had leeway to use the logo to promote itself and raise money for its charitable works.

J&J had claimed the Red Cross broke the law by licensing its emblem to other companies, plunging the two organizations into a legal dispute.
