PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Zoo says it’s moving forward with its upcoming Asian Lantern Festival after a judge denied the Cleveland Metroparks’ request for a temporary restraining order over the name.

Cleveland Metroparks had claimed in a federal lawsuit that the Pittsburgh Zoo was infringing on a trademark by promoting the festival that way.

The judge says the phrase Asian Lantern Festival is likely to be considered a generic term. The lantern festival at the Pittsburgh Zoo begins Aug. 14.
