Kroger’s private label log lawsuit against Lidl dismissed

Citing legal documents filed late this week, WRAL has reported that, after getting a trial date for Jan. 2018, both Kroger and Lidl “came to an agreement and requested that the lawsuit be dismissed.” Kroger had alleged that Lidl’s “Preferred Selection” was too similar to its own “Private Selection.” A little more than a month ago, Lidl’s attorneys responded to the suit, stating that Lidl had acted in good faith when selecting the Preferred Selection name and logo. “At this time, we do not know if Lidl will be making any changes to their products,” WRAL added.
