Lady A’ Sues The Band Lady A for Trademark Infringement

Anita White, aka Lady A, has filed a trademark infringement suit against Lady A Entertainment LLC and its principals, Charles Kelley, David Haywood and Hillary Scott, asking for, among other things, sole usage of the name and compensatory damages.
