Hershey Drops Suit Claiming Mars Infringed Reese’s Trademark

Hershey Co., the maker of Reese’s candies, dropped a lawsuit against Mars Inc. in which it claimed Mars’s packaging for its Dove peanut butter and chocolate bars infringed trademarks for Reese’s.

Hershey and Mars agreed to “dismiss with prejudice all claims asserted in this action,” according to a filing yesterday in federal court in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. No details were given for the dismissal.
