HOUSTON – A legal victory was announced Tuesday for Buc-ee's.

It won its federal trademark lawsuit against a Texas competitor.

Buc-ee's filed a lawsuit against Choke Canyon out of San Antonio, saying its alligator mascot infringes on the Buc-ees trademark.

The trial was held in a Houston courtroom and it lasted one week.

The jury delivered its verdict Tuesday.

The trial only addressed liability.

We're told damages will be decided at a future date.
