Lukes Oil Convenience Stores Sued by Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America

The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America have filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Hammond after a regional gas station called Luke’s Oil Co. failed to remove the trademark OU Kashruth symbol from its logo.

The OU symbol indicates that food is kosher and supervised as such by the  Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations.

Having registered the symbol as a trademark, the Rabbinic Authority are relying on trademark infringement as a quick and efficient way to have the false certification removed.
