Hells Angels Motorcycle Corp suing Redbubble Limited over use of logo on T-shirts

THE Hells Angels bikie club is in the Federal Court today fighting for the right to continue to sue a hipster T-shirt retailer over wares it sells online.

The Browns Plains-based Hells Angels Motorcycle Corporation (Australia) — declared a criminal organisation by the Queensland Government in 2013 - has sued claiming their feelings have been hurt, and they are “distressed” by their fearsome bikie logo appearing on T-shirts.

The T-shirts were sold by Melbourne company Redbubble Limited, which plans to raise $30 million by floating on the Australian Securities Exchange on May 17.

The club’s corporate entity, which is wholly owned by unemployed Brisbane president Mark Nelms, is represented in court this morning before Justice Andrew Greenwood.

The US arm of the club, which holds the worldwide trademark rights to the flying skull logo, is also a party in the lawsuit.

Alleged Hells Angels member committed to trial on Project Forseti charges

A Saskatoon man who police say is a full-patch Hells Angels member will stand trial in connection to the Project Forseti drug busts.

In Saskatoon Provincial Court on Tuesday, both the Crown and defence consented to committing Rob David Allen, 35, to trial without holding a preliminary hearing.

Allen was charged with two counts of trafficking cocaine as part of the province-wide raids in January 2015. During his court appearance Tuesday, Allen heard new charges laid against him: possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of oxycodone and possession of hydromorphone.

The charges stem from Jan. 14, 2015, the same day the Project Forseti arrests took place.

Trial dates for Allen have yet to be scheduled.

Finger tattoos gave wanted Hells Angel away to alert Mountie

~~San Diego club member ordered deported from Canada to face U.S. charges~~

It was his tattoos that gave American Hells Angel and fugitive Troy Andrew Scholder away.

An alert Mountie noticed H-A-M-C across the fingers of his right hand, for Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, and D-A-G-O across the left, for the San Diego chapter.

Scholder, 33, was caught during a routine traffic stop near Langley’s Willowbrook mall on May 8.

He said he had arrived in Canada on May 6, despite being on the lam since August 2011. And he told the RCMP that he had hitchhiked here and crossed the border without identification documents while sleeping on the back seat of a stranger’s car.

On Friday, Immigration Board member Laura Ko ordered Scholder deported and told him he was inadmissible to re-enter Canada because of his own criminal history and because the San Diego Hells Angels qualified as a criminal organization under Canadian immigration laws.
