Richie Ashburn Trademark Lawsuit

The Hall of Famers' family is being sued

The family of Phillies icon Richie Ashburn is being taken to court to settle a dispute surrounding the profits generated from the merchandising and naming rights associated with the late Hall of Famer. If the Ashburn’s attorneys’ defense is half as good as Whitey’s was in the Connie Mack Stadium outfield, then PDQ and company will have its work cut out for them. [Courthouse News]
