Following several motions and other related procedural matters the matter was resolved with Honda Motor Co. agreeing to permit the cancellation of the registered trademark as it pertains to the International Class 14 goods. Thereafter, the TTAB so cancelled the registration securing the victory for Gardella Jewelry, LLC.
