The Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club has taken a former member to federal court for trademark infringement. He's accused of using club trademarks without permission to sell memorabilia online, like one of the club’s coveted coconut throws.";

The Advocate reports that a federal hearing Monday may show who’s legally entitled to use the Zulu Mardi Gras krewe’s name on Facebook.

Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club Inc. filed suit against a former associate member for trademark infringement. The lawsuit says the man set up a “Zulu Mardi Gras” Facebook page, and used club trademarks without permission in an attempt to sell invitations to the Zulu Mardi Gras ball, spots on a Zulu float, and one of the club’s coveted coconut throws.

Zulu said the former member’s actions have caused “irreparable injury,” and asked the court to prevent him from continuing to use the trademarks, as well as paying for damages and attorney’s fees.
