The Commercial Court at the Temple of Justice has delayed its decision on the trademark fraud case between BAF Trading Corporation, two government agencies, and H.K. Enterprise, owned by a Lebanese businessman.Lawyers representing BAF Trading Corporation in the case held final arguments in May with presiding Judge Chan-Chan A. Paegar reserving his final ruling.Although both lawyers rested after oral and documentary evidences, which led to the final argument, Judge Paegar is yet to hand down the final judgment despite issuing the first notice of assignment.Although Judge Paegar has assigned the case for ruling more than four times, the Commercial Court Judge is yet to rule in the case thus leaving party litigants’ fates in limbo. It is not clear why Judge Paegar has delayed his final ruling.It may be recalled that several months ago, BAF Trading Corporation, importers of ‘Pop Drink’ in Liberia dragged the Ministry of Commerce, the Liberia Industrial Property Office (LIPO) and a Lebanese businessman, who is the owner of H.K. Enterprise, to court for trademark infringement.BAF Trading Corporation registered its trademark in March 2010, but without any violation and expiration of its ten-year right, the Liberia Industrial Property Office (LIPO) in 2014 issued to H.K. Enterprise a duplicate trademark that caused BTC to reportedly lose millions of United States dollars.LIPO was established by an Act of the National Legislature on March 23, 2003, with the mandate to control the registration and regulation of intellectual property materials by providing minimum local and international standards of protection. BAF claimed that LIPO did not follow due process and revoked its exclusive right, and subsequently issued it to H.K. Enterprise.H.K. Enterprise is owned by Housseni Kafel, who is being tried for allegedly using the duplicated trademark certificate to import ‘Pop Drink’ to the Liberian market.According to information, LIPO in 2014 registered the trademark certificate in favor of H.K. Enterprise as the only entity to import and sell ‘Pop Drink’ in Liberia.Kafel said later he got the understanding that LIPO in 2010 issued the same trademark to another company, BAF Trading Corporation, for ten years to be the sole importer and distributor of ‘Pop Drink’ in Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
MONTEBELLO — Students from Pioneer, Schurr, Montebello and El Rancho high schools have received Environmental Scholarships from Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley. Cooley presented the awards during a ceremony at Schurr High School in Montebello on Thursday to 13 students, recognizing their participation in community clean-up projects, recycling drives and other ecology-related projects. The scholarship program is funded by a nearly $270,000 settlement in a criminal case against Grow Group Inc. To date, the program has awarded more than $174,000 in scholarships to 292 high school students, Cooley’s office said in a statement. This year’s winners included Jasmin Andrade of Pioneer High School in Whittier; Genesis Gonzalez of El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera; Janderee Garcia, Aaron RuvaIcaba and Charlotte Cabeza of Montebello High School; and Johana Lozano, Tammy Lee and Selene Solis of Schurr High School.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Frank Mateljan, spokesman with the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, said the office only received its copy of the lawsuit on Tuesday, and would be unable to comment on it until it had been reviewed. In 2002, Hillcrest sought to build a west campus addition on 5.5 acres it owned at the corner of Rinaldi Street and Shoshone Avenue. The school wanted to expand its enrollment from 800 students to 1,200, and extend its hours of operation beyond those in its 1996 conditional use permit so that parents could attend evening programs at the school. The Los Angeles City Council’s Planning and Land Use Management Committee called the school’s expansion plan “fatally flawed,” citing problems with inadequate parking, unsafe pedestrian conditions and increased traffic on surrounding streets. The school revised its plan, but in 2003 the committee again denied it, again saying the project should be scaled back in size, and that its hours of operation should not change. Neighbors, including the group Neighbors Opposed to Planned Expansion, or NOPE, strongly opposed the expansion, saying the expansion plans would disrupt the neighborhood with too much traffic and noise. They also complained that the school had been found in violation of its conditional use permit by the city on numerous occasions. But Tyler said the city didn’t start enforcing the conditional use permit until neighbors complained. The school still wants to expand. Susan Tipton, one of the members of NOPE, was dismayed to hear about the lawsuit. “I thought this done; I thought this was put to rest legally as far as their ability to expand on their conditional use permit,” Tipton said. “The neighbors remain dedicated to maintaining the serenity of the neighborhood. We are looking to a mutually respectful relationship, not an antagonistic one, and we thought that the school’s intention was to create a feeling of goodwill in the community. Now it seems unfair for them to resurrect this issue.” Lisa M. Sodders, (818) 713-3663 email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GRANADA HILLS – Hillcrest Christian School has filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Los Angeles, challenging the city’s land use restrictions. Among the 30-year-old school’s complaints: that it can’t use its property at 17531 Rinaldi Street more than 10 Saturdays a year for weddings or funerals. It also is unhappy with provisions that require the school to teach to state educational standards – which may clash with the school’s Christian teachings – and limits its hours, hampering the school’s ability to host after-school activities. “These burdensome conditions are an outrage,” said Robert Tyler, general counsel for Advocates for Faith and Freedom, a non-profit law firm which is representing the school in the case. “They trample upon the school’s and parents’ rights to provide a Christian-based education as opposed to a secular-based education as guaranteed by constitutional provisions and federal statute.”
A Co Donegal farmer has been given until December 1st to provide proof of ownership of a tractor worth almost £44,000 (€55,000) which was seized by Gardai.Letterkenny Court.Noel Devine appeared at Letterkenny District Court claiming ownership of the machinery which was taken from his land at Kirkneedy, Newmills. Detective Garda Michael Carroll told the court that the tractor was on an alert list from the PSNI.They seized the tractor as they were searching for other alleged stolen goods on Mr Devine’s lands, he claimed.That followed a court case in Strabane in which a hire purchase firm, Societe Generale, had claimed ownership of the tractor.The firm claimed it had entered into an agreement with a Noel Martin Devine of 8 Melmount Gardens, Strabane for the machine.It had a total cash price of £43,800 and that Mr Devine had paid £10,800.A total of £49,535 was owed on the machine but Societe Generale claimed no further payments were made on the machine.Mr Devine, from Newmills, claimed it was he who had lived at 8 Melmount Gardens, as he was going through a divorce at the time.He agreed he had taken finance on the tractor but had refused to make any more payments because the tractor had broken down.Devine said he had went back to the firm he had bought the tractor from and explained it had broken down but they said it was out of their hands.Devine told Judge Paul Kelly that he was a member of the Irish Farmers Association and he had asked the Donegal branch to write to the finance company explaining his situation but they had received no reply.Devine said he had never ben contacted by the courts in Northern Ireland about the seizure of the tractor saying he “would have loved the opportunity to have gone there (to court).”Devine added “I wasn’t served anything and this just isn’t right.”Judge Paul Kelly said he was adjourning the case until December 1st and suggested that Devine bring a member of the IFA with him to explain how they tried to contact the hire purchase firm in relation to the matter.He also asked him to bring along any other documentation he may have in relation to the tractor.However, Judge Kelly warned that it may not advance matters.FARMER IN BATTLE TO PROVE OWNERSHIP OF €55K TRACTOR SEIZED BY GARDAI was last modified: August 10th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalfarmerLetterkenny District CourtNEWMILLSNOEL DEVINEtractor

Noah Clinton has taken to YouTube to share his fantastic experience at this year’s Liquid Therapy AS Open.Noah, who has autism, is a huge fan of Liquid Therapy and has been attending classes for the past 3-4 years.Liquid Therapy provides a supported environment that allows individuals of all abilities to experience the fun and benefits of water therapy. Established in 2011, they provide young people with the opportunity to experience surfing, who may have difficulties in mainstream classes.The award-winning foundation has its base in Donegal’s surfing hub, Bundoran, and it runs solely off of donations.On the 17th of September, they hosted a surfing festival to finish off the surfing season on a high.Noah Clinton (9) from Manorcunningham, was one of the participants at the AS Open, and video blogged his fantastic day. Noah and his sisters Amelia (7) and Olivia (3) all have autism, and enjoy the one-on-one sessions with Liquid Therapy volunteers.Their mum, Clara, told Donegal Daily that this year’s AS Open was an incredible experience for the whole family.“Families from across Ireland came to Rossnowlagh to attend the AS Open, it was open to anyone who had taken part in Liquid Therapy sessions throughout the summer.“It was a great day out for everyone, and all of the children got a medal at the end.”The Liquid Therapy classes are run by volunteers and Clara says that the lessons are invaluable. “All three of the children enjoy it, and it gives me peace of mind to know that the sessions are one-on-one.“It can be hard to send them to things that won’t be one-on-one incase they get lost in the crowd, so it’s great to know there is someone looking after them.”Noah and Amelia have been taking part in surfing lessons for the last 3 or 4 summers, with little sister Olivia giving it a shot this summer!“Olivia had her first go at Liquid Therapy, and it went really well!” “The water does something for them, it’s always been a kind of therapy for them, ever since they were babies. They’re in their element when they’re in the water. Noah absolutely loves it and goes as far in as he can and jumps over the waves. It’s a very calming activity and allows them to get involved.“I’m very proud and delighted with them all, it was so nice to see smiles on all of their faces.”“Tom Losey is fantastic, he does everything and organises every bit of it. He’s a really great guy. The lessons are all free and they work from donations. Everything is provided such as the wetsuits and surfboards.”Noah’s fantastic filmmaking skills came in handy during the day, as he video blogged the entire event.“Noah loves YouTube and would like to become a YouTuber. He loves video bloggers DanTDM and Nathaniel Bandy, he also loves anything Nintendo related.”Noah has been running his own YouTube Channel for a little over a year, with the screen name ‘Firetwomp 69’ and puts a lot of work into his many fantastic videos.To learn more about Liquid Therapy, you can visit www.liquidtherapy.ieWatch: Noah (9) captures Liquid Therapy Surf Festival with fantastic vlog was last modified: September 26th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:liquid therapy
