A small company has beaten back attempts by Facebook to get its trademark lawsuit dismissed:
Timelines launched a website called Timelines.com in 2009 that enables users to track historical events and their personal lives online. Two years later, Facebook Inc. launched a major new feature it called "timeline," which similarly allows users to highlight their lives online in chronological order.
The Chicago company filed its lawsuit weeks after Facebook introduced its "timeline" feature.

The problem Facebook is always going to have is that courts are run by humans. And any judge is going to know Facebook's history. (i.e. the founders are now all billionaires off a stock sell that was "allegedly" fraudulent/misleading)
Also all the privacy issues they don't care about, the behind-the-curtain approach to customer support and their own legal issues (e.g. that the whole original Facebook code bit was "allegedly" stolen from Zucker's university).
Facebook walk into court every time with a big KICK ME sign stapled to their face.
