ADL Obtains Injunction Against American-italian Group Using Its Name

Download PDF for this date

New York State Supreme Court Justice Waltemade granted an injunction sought by the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith to prohibit an American-Italian organization from using the words "anti-defamation league" in its name. The ADL of B’nai B’rith is 54 years old. The American-Italian league was formed a year ago.

Lengthy talks between the two agencies preceded the ADL decision to seek an injunction against the American-Italian group, and the action followed when the talks failed. Justice Waltemade ordered that an early trial be held for full determination of the issues.
