N.J. Turnpike Authority Sues Over Restaurant's Look-Alike Logo

, New Jersey Law Journal


The New Jersey Turnpike Authority has filed suit in federal court against a Florida restaurant franchise with a New Jersey theme, claiming its yellow-and-green logo infringes the agency's service mark for the Garden State Parkway.

    funny the Turnpike Authority apparently didn‘t object to Southside Johnny‘s ca 2002 cover art of his "Going to Jukesville" album, with its photo of Southside standing in his trademark shades in front of a fake Parkway exit sign with the word "Jukes" replacing "Parkway" in the same logo. either somebody at the NJTA is a big Southside fan, or nobody is. album is still available on Southside‘s website and iTunes among other places. Maybe it‘s a case of love on the wrong side of town....

    Ridiculous waste of money.

  • Lou

    All I can picture is someone driving up to a NJT toll booth, trying to order a pizza. Ridiculous claim.

  • Richard

    Doesn‘t this state agency have something better to do with toll money than run to Fla. to file suit?? Geez!
