32Red victorious in legal battle with William Hill

Online casino 32Red wins a long-running dispute with William Hill over trademark infringement.

The Court of Appeal has found in favour of online casino 32Red in its dispute with bookmaker William Hill.

The dispute arose last year when 32Red said that William Hill’s online casino, 32Vegas, infringed on its trademarks.

The High Court found in favour of 32Red, but William Hill appealed the decision.

The Court of Appeal dismissed this appeal on Tuesday, saying that William Hill’s lawyers made a “full-scale attack on the previous judge’s analysis and conclusions on virtually every aspect of his judgment.”

The court ordered William Hill to pay 32Red £70000 in costs within two weeks. However, the full amount of damages to be paid have yet to agreed.

Ivor Jones, analyst at Numis Securities, said, “The result vindicates 32Red’s dogged defence of its interests against well-financed opposition.”

He said that the firm has now convincingly won the case against William Hill, continuing, “The only uncertainty now is how much, and how quickly, William Hill is going to have to pay up.”
