Fire causes setback in Buc-ee's legal battle over another business' mascot

HOUSTON - There's been a setback in Buc-ee's legal battle over another business' mascot.

The Lake Jackson-based chain is suing Choke Canyon Travel Center in San Antonio, saying the travel center is infringing on Buc-ee's trademark.

The case was set for a federal trial in Houston this week.

Then, something unexpected happened. The Choke Canyon offices were destroyed by fire.  

An emergency motion for a continuance was granted. 

There is no word yet on a new trial date.
