Federal jury rules government can
seize Mongols motorcycle club’s trademark

Orange County Register, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:poster, 1/11/2019 8:27:03 PM

In a closely watched trial with possibly far-reaching legal implications, a federal jury decided Friday that the notorious Mongols motorcycle club must forfeit the logos worn by its members, finding in favor of prosecutors’ novel claim that there is a direct link between the club’s crimes and its well-known, trademarked insignia. The jury’s verdict Friday marked the end of the second phase of a trial focusing on forfeiture of assets. In the first phase last month, the jury found the club, which was established in Montebello in the 1970s, guilty of racketeering and conspiracy to commit racketeering.

Let me see if I understand. A federal jury has determined that the US government can seize a private organizations artwork design. In other words their intellectual property. The same thing they accuse the Chinese government of doing. I don´t believe they have thought through the implications of their decision.

I reckon with this precedent, they can seize any peasant´s copyrights, trademarks, patents etc. if they think we might have committed a crime, or may commit one in the future.

This may be even worse than their draconian Asset Forfeiture laws, where they can even steal the money out of your wallet if you are carrying more than they think you should have, even if you aren´t actually charged with a crime.

There will be blood all over the place. You don´t touch a guy´s bike.

Personally I think they should spend their time on the big money racketeers at the top of the list like Clinton, Obama, Holder, Sanders, Rice, Lynch, Jarrett, Jackson, Sharpton, Waters, Menendez, etc, etc.

I understand their desire to reduce competition, but do they really think that confiscating the competition´s logo will serve protecting their monopoly in any way?

What are they going to do, collect a royalty on every Mongol rag produced? Or have the IRS wear that logo when confiscating funds to be given to Planned Parenthood to use to kill children?

The Judicial system has been accumulating far too much power over our lives, in greater and greater detail, more and more intrusively.

Some of it is due to individuals´ eagerness to sue, which brings the courts into our lives as arbiters in almost everything.

Right now, the Executive branch, President Trump, is in an epic battle with the Judiciary which is seeking the termination of POTUS.

By not performing its Constitutional duties, the Legislative branch keeps surrendering power to the courts.

Marbury v. Madison ought to be struck down. This has made the SJC way, way, WAY too powerful. To heck with "settled Law." As long as human beings are fallible, the idea of "settled Law" or "settled science" is ridiculous... and dangerous.

This Mongols case brings to mind the Kelo v. City of New London (i think it was). Horrible decision.

what am i doing up at 1AM?

So where is this all leading? Are lawyers going to start wearing appropriated leather jackets with Mongols patches?
Sport bike magazine writers have themselves a loosely organized group of speed limit breakers. They call themselves The Slimey Cruds Motorcycle Gang, The Cruds for short. That one would suit lawyers even better.

This should not stand up in a higher court. What needs to happen is prosecute the ´1% ers´ for their activities.

MS13 and other criminal gangs like these 1% scum need to be declared terrorists and we can apply all our resources against them as enemy combatants, which they are!

These are not nice guys or good people. Sorry.

Police said they learned about the activities of Gregg Marinelli, 38, of Plattekill, during the cocaine- and fentanyl-trafficking investigation dubbed “Operation: Bread, White and Blues” that resulted in more than two dozen arrests in February, although Marinelli was not charged in that case.

Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile was full of posthumous praise for the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday’s edition of Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier. The context was President Trump’s renewed criticism of McCain after a newly-released deposition showed how deeply McCain was involved in the fraudulent “Russia dossier” that has been used to attack the administration and divide the nation. Brazile, who Fox News recently hired as a contributor, began by criticizing the president for speaking ill of the dead. She then continued: “John McCain leaves a legacy. He leaves a legacy of

The battle over the admissions standards at New York City’s elite public high schools has heated up again. After having failed to change the standards last year, Mayor Bill de Blasio is back at it, this time with some backup from celebrity freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. As usual, their impassioned pleas about the lack of black and Hispanic students completely ignores that it is Asian, not white, students who would bear the brunt of the proposed changes. At issue is the fact that these hyper-competitive high schools consider only a test score in deciding admissions

The commandant of the Marines has warned the Pentagon that deployments to the southwest border and funding transfers under the president’s emergency declaration, among other unexpected demands, have posed “unacceptable risk to Marine Corps combat readiness and solvency.” In two internal memos, Marine Corps Gen. Robert Neller said the “unplanned/unbudgeted” deployment along the border that President Trump ordered last fall, and shifts of other funds to support border security, had forced him to cancel or reduce planned military training in at least five countries, and delay urgent repairs at bases.(Snip) Neller, a four-star general, said because of the

The apparent scoop du jour is that ex-VP Joe Biden is set to announce his bid with his running mate already picked out: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Suggestions for his VP thus far have been a who’s-who of the current field of competition for the nomination, including Harris and O’Rourke. Abrams possibly becoming The Chosen One is somewhat surprising, because her star has only so recently begun its ascendency — but not too surprising, because of her fierce intellect, warm demeanor and popularity. Stacey Abrams exudes good sense and kindness, delivered with impeccable poise: that’s the impression most

"Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased; only a state funeral for a former president involves consultation with government officials," a cathedral spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday. "No funeral at the Cathedral requires the approval of the president or any other government official," he added.

A federal judge ruled that the Interior Department violated federal law by failing to take into account the climate impact of its oil and gas leasing in the West. The decision late Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras in the District of Columbia marks the first time the Trump administration has been held to account for the climate impact of its energy agenda, and it could have sweeping implications for the president’s plan to boost fossil fuel production across the country. Contreras concluded that Interior’s Bureau of Land Management “did not sufficiently consider climate change” when making decisions to auction

Former liberal Republican California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger ripped President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening for his “absolutely unacceptable” attacks on the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). “He was just an unbelievable person,” Schwarzenegger told the Atlantic. “So an attack on him is absolutely unacceptable if he’s alive or dead—but even twice as unacceptable since he passed away a few months ago. It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever to do that. I just think it’s a shame that the president lets himself down to that kind of level.
