Court Grants Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Requested Injunction

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 21 /EMWNews/ -- Wounded Warrior

Project received word last Monday from the District Court of Nebraska that

a preliminary injunction was entered against Wounded Warriors, Inc.,

requiring the organization to close down a website which has been the

source of much donor confusion, and requires the organization to

specifically disclose on all future websites it is not affiliated with WWP.

    The court found that all of the factors that are elements of

consideration for the granting of injunctive relief under the Nebraska

Deceptive Trade Practices Act had been met by WWP. The Court, in part,

relied upon admissions by the defendant in the case that there had been

actual instances of confusion.

    "We are pleased that the court granted this extraordinary remedy to

alleviate a very disturbing situation," stated Errol Copilevitz, Outside

Counsel for Wounded Warrior Project.

    The Court's ruling in this case is in support of "donor intent." Those

who sought to support the Wounded Warrior Project should not be confused in

supporting other organizations with confusingly similar names.

    Previous to this ruling, Wounded Warrior had changed its name to be

Wounded Warriors Family Support and as part of the decision, any new

website developed must contain the disclaimer "This site is not affiliated

with the Wounded Warrior Project."

    "It remains in the best interest of all veteran's charities to ensure

wounded veterans are served and that donor monies be directed to the

organization running the programs they choose to support," said Copilevitz.

"It is our hope that with this decision both organizations can move forward

conducting their business in a manner that is reasonable and fair."
