Jury decides to strip Mongols biker gang of trademark logo

SANTA ANA, Calif. - Federal prosecutors say a California jury has decided the Mongols motorcycle gang should be stripped of its trademarked logo.

Jurors in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana on Friday found that the government could seize control of the group’s trademark.

The jury previously found the Mongol Nation, the entity that owns the image of a Mongol warrior on a chopper, guilty of racketeering and conspiracy.
