Gonzaga University won a legal victory this week against the owner of a shuttered downtown bar that had been illegally using the school's trademarks. U.S. District Court Judge Lonny Suko entered a permanent injunction Thursday barring Jamie Pendleton, owner of the Downtown Spokane Daiquiri Factory, from using the school’s trademarks in future promotions for the controversial bar.
