A California appellate court has dismissed 2 lawsuits against the Tuolumne County Visitors Bureau. The suits were brought by Robert White of a company called White Vines Productions. The company had been called The Tuolumne County Film Consortium, which the Visitors Bureau said sounded “deceptively similar” to “Film Commission.” The Bureau said the name might confuse potential filmmakers.
There were suits and counter suits filed. Now the only issue still unresolved is who pays some of the legal fees incurred during the squabble.
