SALT LAKE CITY — Settlement talks are off for two Utah soda shops fighting over trademark rights to "dirty sodas" spiked with flavor shots.

A judge has set seven-day trial for November 2018 in the court battle between soda chains Sodalicious and Swig, the Daily Herald reported Monday.

Swig filed a federal trademark lawsuit in 2015 claiming Sodalicious ripped off the increasingly profitable concept of calling sugary drinks with extra flavor shots "dirty."

Sodalicious is pushing back, saying the word is a common drink moniker and they've done nothing wrong.
