Jury to strip biker gang of trade­mark logo

The Fresno Bee - - Stay Connected -

A Cal­i­for­nia jury de­cided Fri­day that the Mon­gols mo­tor­cy­cle gang should be stripped of its trade­marked logo in a first-of-its-kind ver­dict, fed­eral pros­e­cu­tors said.

The jury in U.S. Dis­trict Court in Santa Ana pre­vi­ously found Mon­gol Na­tion, the en­tity that owns the im­age of a Mon­gol war­rior on a chop­per, guilty of rack­e­teer­ing and con­spir­acy.

The ver­dict caps an un­usual decade-long quest by pros­e­cu­tors to dis­man­tle the gang re­spon­si­ble for drug deal­ing and mur­der by seiz­ing con­trol of the trade­mark they said was core to the gang’s iden­tity.
