Business Courier of Cincinatti: Lawsuit Challenges Ruby on Tropicana Name
“Bill Yung’s Tropicana Entertainment LLC, the owner of the Tropicana hotel and casino chain and its Las Vegas flagship, has filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment Inc.
Tropicana Entertainment contends that Ruby’s use of the Tropicana name and trade dress at his Tropicana restaurant in Newport infringes on its trademark, which its predecessor registered for hotel and restaurant services in 1989.”
