Earlier this year Mathew Chase Gilbert sued former friend, and social media influencer, Jaclyn Hill over her brand's logo design claiming not only trademark infringement but also that he was tricked into signing away his rights as well as not having been paid for the work.

As of October 20, 2016 the case has now been dismissed by Judge Virginia M. Hernandez Covington. According to Pacer records, the case was "DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE. Gilbert is authorized to file a Second Amended Complaint, if he so chooses, on or before November 3, 2016." So what does this mean? It means that Chase has a small window to either continue his pursuit against Jaclyn or drop it. We'll know in a few days if the case is closed - permanently - against her.
