DIAMONDHEAD, Miss. (AP) – The company that owns trademark and merchandising rights for Larry the Cable Guy says the Giterdone convenience store in Diamondhead, Mississippi, is violating the trademark on the catchphrase Git-R-Done.
The store’s response denies the allegations and asks a federal judge to rule in the store’s favor.
Gulfport attorney William Whitfield III sued Nov. 18 for Git-R-Done Productions Inc. of Florida and Atlanta. New Orleans attorney Tom Wood filed the response for Giterdone C-Store of Diamondhead on Tuesday.
The lawsuit alleges damages of more than $75,000 and asks the judge to award it triple that amount.
Larry the Cable Guy is the stage name of Daniel Lawrence Whitney, known for his blue-collar comedy.
