Aggie Business Will Fight Legal Battle in Longhorn Territory

The stage is set for the legal showdown between the University of Texas and an Aggie-loving local company. A court has ruled the case will be heard in an Austin courtroom.

The dispute is between the UT's Board of Regents and Aggieland Outfitters, over the company's popular "Saw 'Em Off" logo featuring a broken-horned longhorn. UT filed suit claiming the design is an illegal use of their longhorn trademark.

Attorneys for Aggieland Outfitters asked that the case be moved away from Austin to Houston. But Wednesday, that request was denied.

In a new development to this story, UT is now claiming the "Mess With Texas" and "Hunt Texas" shirts sold by Aggieland Outfitters also infringes on their exclusive right to use the word "Texas".
