Welcome to Law.com’s Midweek Recess, in which we round up some tasty tidbits from the week’s legal news cycle. We’ll be here every Wednesday, so grab a cup of coffee and take a little break. It’s all downhill to the weekend from here.

Softee v. Softee, Part II - You may recall that a few weeks ago, we told you that Mister Softee was suing Master Softee for trademark infringement. Master Softee is (you guessed it!) an ice cream company. It’s run by Dimitrios Tsirkos, a former Mister Softee franchisee who operates look-alike red, white and blue ice cream trucks. How look-alike, you ask? Both Mister Softee and Master Softee’s trucks are emblazoned with a bow-tie-clad ice cream cone, though Mister Softee’s familiar smiling cake cone is replaced with an upstart waffle cone on Master Softee trucks. Mister Softee, started in 1956, claims to offer “The Very Best,” in frozen sweet tweets, while Master Softee calls itself “The World’s Best.”
