Appeal from a grant of summary judgment by the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Miriam G. Cedarbaum, Judge), dismissing the New York Stock Exchange’s claims against a Las Vegas casino for trademark infringement and dilution under the Lanham Act and trademark blurring and tarnishment under New York law. We affirm in part and reverse in part.

The New York Stock Exchange, Inc. (“NYSE”) appeals from Judge Cedarbaum’s grant of summary judgment, dismissing its claims for trademark infringement and dilution under the Lanham Act, see 15 U.S.C. � 1125, and trademark blurring and tarnishment under New York law, see N.Y. Gen. Bus. Law � 360-l. NYSE brought this action against New York, New York Hotel & Casino, LLC (the “Casino”) and its corporate predecessor, New York, New York Hotel, LLC, to prevent the Casino’s use of physical features and promotional materials based on modified versions of NYSE’s marks. Examples of the modified marks include: (i) a replica of NYSE’s architectural facade that bore the words “New York New York Stock Exchange” located near the Casino’s gambling floor; (ii) the Casino’s “New York $lot Exchange” or “New York-New York $lot Exchange” club for frequent gamblers; (iii) sweatshirts, caps, and other souvenirs given out by the Casino to the members of its players club displaying the “New York $lot Exchange” or “New York-New York $lot Exchange” slogan; and (iv) the Casino’s reference to its players club by the “NY$E” or “NY-NY$E” abbreviation.

IN MEMORIAM OUR FRIEND, MENTOR, AND COLLEAGUE It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our partner, friend, mentor, and colleague Bruce I. Goldstein, on September 2, 2023. The prominent New Jersey trial attorney was 80. In a legal career spanning more than five decades, Bruce was regarded as one of the most talented and sought after litigators in New Jersey. His love for the legal profession was contagious. Bruce will be greatly missed, as will his signature greeting, How you be? and the outsized smile that accompanied it.
