Attorney and Golf Guide Podcast co-host Casey sits down with Kyle to discuss the recent suit filed against Acushnet (parent company of Titleist) by Costco and what the legal implications are for both sides.

Costco has asked for a declaratory judgment in response to a letter it received from Acushent, asserting that Costco infringed on 11 of its patents and engaged in false advertising based on the Kirkland Signature guarantee that its products meet or exceed the quality of leading national brands.

Casey and Kyle discuss what the impeding lawsuit could look like, some possible outcomes, and make some educated guesses as to how everything will shake down.
