Plaintiff-Appellant Design Resources, Inc. (“DRI”), appeals the district court’s entry of summary judgment in favor of Defendants-Appellees Leather Industries of America (“LIA”) and Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. (“Ashley”), on DRI’s false advertising claim under the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1125(a). DRI alleged that an advertisement placed in a trade magazine by Ashley (the “Ashley Ad”), as well as two statements by Dr. Nicholas Cory, director of LIA’s research laboratory, which ran in articles in the same publication, were false and misleading. The district court granted summary judgment to LIA and Ashley, concluding that DRI had not presented sufficient evidence to establish a Lanham Act claim. For the reasons that follow, we affirm.
