Lac La Belle Lodge and Mount Bohemia Ski Resort reach a settlement
The two businesses have been in a legal battle over a Mount Bohemia Ski Resort trademark
LAC LA BELLE, Mich. (WLUC) - Lac La Belle Lodge Co-Owners Cathy and Troy Westcott said a settlement has been reached between their business and Mount Bohemia Ski Resort Monday, Jan. 24.
“We are able to continue selling merchandise bearing the name Mount Bohemia as we had previously but the deal sunsets or ends in December of 2024,” Cathy and Troy Westcott said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.
Disputes began in April 2021 when Mount Bohemia Ski Resort served the lodge a cease and desist letter to stop selling products that use the words Mount Bohemia - known as a backcountry ski resort and as a geographical peak.
Mount Bohemia Ski Resort sued Lac La Belle Lodge after they did not stop selling products that say Mount Bohemia. The two parties were scheduled to meet in federal court for a settlement conference on Dec. 21. The date was rescheduled to Monday, Jan. 24.
