Pussy Riot Sued

pussy riot bandRussian punk band Pussy Riot has just been sentenced to 2 years in prison for "hooliganism" for their part in a Moscow anti-Putin protest. Sadly, the legal troubles for the radical girl group is only growing worse.

A lawsuit has be entered on behalf of a Florida nightclub with the same name today. Lawyers for "Pussy Riot", a Miami bar and show lounge have entered a "cease and desist" order in a Dade County court room, claiming the Russian "Pussy Riot" infringes on their trademark. The Miami Pussy Riot has been open for business since 2007, first as a Hooters-style family restaurant, then morphing into a "gentleman's club" late last last year.

"The owners of Pussy Riot has spent much time and money creating a brand known throughout the South Florida region which is now being unfairly tarnished by the actions of this all-female Russian band," said Tom Denby, a lawyer for the night club. "Celebrities from film, television, music and especially professional sports teams all come to Pussy Riot knowing they can relax in a safe, fun environment. Being linked unfairly to this group who engage in 'hooliganism' and all manner of questionable tomfoolery or shenanigans is unfair and must be stopped."

The lawsuit is demanding the girl punk band to drop the name "Pussy Riot" immediately and pay $4.5 million in damages. "Alternately, the owners are willing to forgive any money in damages if the girls are willing to come to Miami and perform as Pussy Riot's house band upon their release from prison," added Denby.

A spokesman for popular Atlanta night club "Rioting Pussy" told Dogs & Jeans they are considering joing the lawsuit as a class action.

The whole story is a freak show on its own but I can't get over the fact that this gentleman's club was able to find and retain a pro-communist lawyer from the 1950's! (tomfoolery?)

Nari: Denby was an active opponent to the Bay of Pigs invasion.
