CASE ENTRY

Express Oil Change, LLC v. Mississippi Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers & Surveyors

Company runs auto service centers across the southeast U.S. under the name “Tire Engineers.” Mississippi Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers & Surveyors: Change your name. Consumers might think licensed Professional Engineers are changing their tires. Fifth Circuit: Most people who don’t work for engineering licensure boards probably realize that the word “engineer” can mean lots of different things. And under the First Amendment, the board can’t use speech bans to impose its “preferred definition” of words on the public at large.
