Court Denies Puck´s Request for Preliminary Injunction Related to Wolfgang´s Steakhouse by Wolfgang Zwiener in Beverly Hills

Wolfgang Zwiener, restaurateur and owner of two highly-acclaimed Wolfgangs

Steakhouse establishments in New York and Wolfgangs

Steakhouse by Wolfgang Zwiener in Beverly Hills, today announced that

the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California has

denied Wolfgang Pucks request for a

preliminary injunction related to Wolfgang Zwieners

use of the name Wolfgangs Steakhouse by

Wolfgang Zwiener in connection with Mr. Zwieners

high-end steakhouse in Beverly Hills.

I am very pleased with the courts

ruling and was always confident that, once presented with the facts, the

judge would rule in favor of my steakhouse in Beverly Hills,

said Wolfgang Zwiener. I hope that Puck and

I can now focus on our culinary skills instead of this unfortunate

lawsuit.

In 2007, Puck and Wolfgang Zwiener entered into a mutual agreement,

which allowed Wolfgang Zwiener to continue to use the name Wolfgangs

Steakhouse for his fine dining establishments in New York, New York. The

agreement specifically allowed Wolfgang Zwiener to call his steakhouses

outside New York Wolfgangs Steakhouse by

Wolfgang Zwiener. Wolfgang Zwiener chose Beverly Hills, California for

his first steakhouse outside New York in response to the demand for an

old-fashioned quality steakhouse in LA and the interest of the City of

Beverly Hills. The development process for the steakhouse was publicly

conducted and featured the direct and extensive involvement of the

Beverly Hills City Council, which selected Zwieners

steakhouse to fill a commercial space owned by the City and even

approved the signage. In May 2008, Wolfgangs

Steakhouse by Wolfgang Zwiener opened in Beverly Hills to a star-studded

crowd. Two weeks after the opening, Puck filed suit against Wolfgang

Zwiener claiming that some of his patrons had been confused. Shortly

thereafter, Wolfgang Zwiener filed a countersuit against Puck for

breaching their agreement and refusing to meet with Wolfgang Zwiener to

discuss ways to address Pucks allegations of

confusion.

Wolfgang Zwieners attorney, Joel Schmidt, a

partner at Cowan, Liebowitz and Latman, stated: The

Court recognized that my client had an absolute right to expand into

Beverly Hills under the agreement with Puck and that the facts did not

support Pucks attempts to cast a cloud over

my clients excellent reputation and

legitimate business motives. The Courts

decision specifically states, Pucks

subjective beliefs as to Zwieners alleged

bad faith, moreover, have no bearing on the enforceability of the 2007

Settlement Agreement, which is clear on its face and provides for Zwieners

use of the current name for his restaurant.

Peter Zwiener, Wolfgang Zwieners son,

stated: We have great respect for Mr. Puck

and his achievements and hope the Courts

decision will foster better relations between our organizations. At the

end of the day, we both have the same goal of serving fine food to our

patrons.
