A Dumb Legal Action Against a Nonprofit

The Nonprofit Quarterly reports that Neiman Marcus has threatened a nonprofit thrift store with legal action over the thrift store's use of the name Last Call in connection with clothing sales.  Revente's Last Call is located in Columbia, South Carolina and donates all of its revenues to a local women's shelter.  In its two years of existence, it has handed over more than $40,000. Neiman Marcus sells its left-over, out of season clothing in boutiques called Last Call, though they have no such stores in South Carolina.
