SPOKANE, Wash. -

On Thursday, news that a Judge ruled in favor of the University in a lawsuit filed by GU in April, 2014. In the lawsuit, Gonzaga sued to stop a controversial downtown bar from using its logo and mascot in advertising.

Pendleton Enterprises and Jamie Pendleton, owner of the Daiquiri Factory, are named in the lawsuit. The business attracted a lot of negative attention for naming a drink "Date Grape Koolaid." The bar initially refused to change the name, then finally relented and changed it to Grape Q-Laid.

Also on the menu was the Bulldog Lemonade. The lawsuit states that the drink name, the University's bulldog logo, and the bulldog mascot dressed in a GU shirt have led people to think the university is connected to the bar. It's "a willfull and intentional attempt to create confusion," the lawsuit goes on, "and/or the false impression of an affiliation, connection, association or commercial relationship with Gonzaga University.

The summary of judgement issued Thursday does not specify any penalties, but Pendleton Enterprises will have to stop using GU imagery immediately.

Earlier this year the Spokane County Sheriff's office evicted Pendleton from the bar. They changed all the locks and doors. Pendleton has said he plans to open a second Daiquiri Factory location, near Gonzaga University.
