Warring ‘dirty soda’ shops headed for trial

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Settlement talks are off for two Utah soda shops fighting over trademark rights to “dirty sodas” spiked with flavor shots.

The Daily Herald newspaper reported Monday (http://bit.ly/2uP0fVn) that a judge has set seven-day trial for November 2018 in the court battle between soda chains Sodalicious and Swig.

Sodalicious is pushing back, saying the word is a common drink moniker and they’ve done nothing wrong.
