New York - Brooklyn Kosher-Certification Agency Files Suit Against Local Stores It Claims Are Improperly Using Its Logo
Brooklyn, NY - A kosher-certification agency based in Crown Heights has filed suit against several local stores claiming that they are displaying its trademarked symbol without having properly been inspected by company rabbis.
NYPOST.com (http://bit.ly/1RPW66v) reports that in court documents reps for Vaad Hakashrus of Crown Heights Inc. say their patented “CHK” logo was trademarked way back in 2006 insuring only the highest level of kosher quality, but now three Brooklyn liquor stores and two cafes—-as well as an upstate liquor store in Ellenville—-are improperly displaying the logo.
The parties named in the suit filed in Brooklyn federal court are Kingston Bakery, Chocolatte, Eber’s Liquors & Wine, Wine by the Case and Responsible Liquor—-all located in Brooklyn, and Ellenville’s Allied Wine.
Upon learning of the conflict, the owner of Eber’s Liquors & Wines said the store immediately stopped using the logo, however, a Brooklyn industry expert said that the Vaad logo issue has already been settled in rabbinical court and that it was determined that the logo is community property.
