The Los Angeles-based Mongols motorcycle club will not be stripped of its trademarked logo any time soon, after a federal judge essentially overruled a jury‘s decision to deprive the group of its collective symbol.

U.S. District Judge David O. Carter in Santa Ana said Thursday that the jury ruling violated club members‘ 1st Amendment rights to free association and expression and their 8th Amendment protection against excessive penalties.

“It is beyond question that the Government has a legitimate interest in attacking the economic roots of a criminal organization like the Mongol Nation,” Carter wrote in his 51-page ruling. But he said forcing the club to forfeit its rights associated with the symbol the group has used since 1969 “is unjustified and grossly disproportionate.”

Charges against eight accused Vagos biker gang members stemming from the killing of a rival Hells Angels leader not thrown out

In January, a jury, in a , agreed with federal prosecutors to strip the Mongols of the logo – an image of a goateed Genghis Khan-like figure wearing sunglasses and a ponytail riding a chopper, below the club name. Prosecutors that the Mongols are a criminal gang and their logo is central to their outlaw identity which “they wear like armor.”

A month earlier, the same jury had convicted Mongols leadership group, the Mongol Nation, of racketeering and conspiracy charges associated with drug dealing and violent crimes by individual members.

Club leaders say their group is not a criminal operation and that any crimes were committed were the work of rogue members who had been expelled from the organization.

Attorneys for the motorcycle club say the jury‘s ruling was a case of government overreach.

“It‘s an attempt at collective guilt, which has never been the law here in this country,” Mongols attorney Joe Yanny said, as quoted by the . “You don‘t hold people guilty or punish folks simply because they know people that may be related in some fashion to people who are alleged to have done something wrong.”

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney‘s Office said in a that prosecutors are disappointed with the ruling and is “definitely considering an appeal.”

Carter‘s ruling is “spot on,” said Marsha Gentner, an intellectual property attorney in Washington, D.C.

“The judge recognizes that although intangible property may be the subject of a seizure or forfeiture, a trademark, particularly a collective membership mark, is a unique type of property, tied both to actual use and the goodwill it symbolizes, that just doesn‘t fit, in this particular circumstance with the remedy the government seeks,” said Gentner in an email to NPR.

Prosecutors have been trying to seize control of the Mongols‘ logo .

That was the same year that nearly 80 members were convicted for a series of drug and assault crimes.

The Mongols, founded in 1969 by a group of Latino men, have a long and sometimes violent rivalry with other biker clubs, such as the Hell‘s Angels.

  3. This is why the save the patch movement is so important to the entire MC community, To assume that this won’t happen to your club is plain stupidity, The federal government will always associate crime with 2 wheel’s, The hypocrisy with in it, is what about the lame ass COP MC, that rides around pretending to be apart of the battle, only when its convenient, right, If you worked at Macdonald’s and you were a uniform that has the arch on it and your co workers sell drugs and commit crimes out side of work yet haven’t took off there uniforms dose that give the feds the right to cease the arch and indiscriminately arrest everyone that works at Macdonald’s across the country? ya its that simple, freedom to associate, to gather, and to live are becoming more and more of a thing of the past, harassment and intimidation by law enforcement is the trend that is taking place these days. A real revolution needs to take place, a truce between all clubs needs to be the idea to come together as a collective to take on every indictment, across the country because if we spend all our club dues on bull shit, when we should be throwing it towards a “court fighting fund “the 3 piece patch will be nothing more than a camp fire tale to our great grand kids,
