'Polo' wins round in Lauren suit

Published on .

A U.S. district court judge in Houston has ruled that the U.S. Polo Association's Polo Magazine, Dallas, can continue to use the name Polo pending the outcome of a lawsuit brought by Polo Ralph Lauren Corp. The magazine must include a written disclaimer stating, "This magazine is not affiliated in any way with Ralph Lauren or any Polo Ralph Lauren entities. The court rejected a pre-trial request by the designer asking the 23-year-old magazine to cease using the Polo name.
