ARRT wins $10K in trademark lawsuit

The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) has won a lawsuit against Corey L. Cox for misrepresenting its trademarked credentials.

According to the final court decision, Cox must pay the ARRT $10,000 in damages and pay more than $14,000 to cover the group’s legal fees.

“Anyone who uses the designation of Registered Technologist or Registered Radiologist Assistant must be certified and registered with ARRT,” Jerry B. Reid, PhD, ARRT’s executive director, said in a prepared statement. “Our mission is to promote high standards of patient care, and we can only do that by ensuring that people who use our credentials have in fact met our standards.”
