Law of Cards: Endurance Wants Its Money From Upper Deck

Law of Cards: Endurance Wants Its Money From Upper Deck

As discussed earlier, the Upper Deck v. Endurance case ended poorly for the trading card manufacturer and is now on appeal. In the meantime, Endurance registered the almost $1.2 million dollar verdict in its favor in a New York court.

Legal translation: Endurance is taking all the steps necessary to make sure that Upper Deck pays back the $1.2 million in legal fees that the California court ruled Endurance is owed.

Between getting hit for almost $4 million last year from Aniplex and paying for its attorneys to fight a few other lawsuits (Upper Deck v. Upper Deck, Upper Deck v. Blowout, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar v. Upper Deck, etc.), it would seem Upper Deck is spending a ton money in court that could be used producing trading cards. Hopefully, that'll end soon.
