Earnhardt Federal Court Case – Teresa Earnhardt vs Kerry Earnhardt battle continues over use of term Earnhardt Collection
The Earnhardt federal court case continues over the use of Earnhardt Collection brand name. This is a recurring story that began in 2016. It’s one of those stories that makes my blood boil.
Kerry Earnhardt is still fighting with his step-mom in federal court to use his own name for his home design business. An appeal date has been set for March 10th. Her case basically claims that she has more rights, being married into the Earnhardt name than the people who were actually born into the same name. Teresa Earnhardt was the third wife of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Sr.
