MLB wants Human Rights Tribunal ruling on Cleveland logo thrown out
Paul-Erik Veel was quoted in the Toronto Star article MLB wants Human Rights Tribunal ruling on Cleveland logo thrown out on June 27, 2017 regarding Major League Baseball's application for judicial review before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice arguing that the case against the Cleveland team name and logo should be set aside due to jurisdictional issues.
Paul-Erik Veel, a lawyer representing Cardinal, said the league’s application could slow down proceedings at the tribunal.
“This trademark argument just doesn’t hold water,” Veel said. “We think that ultimately the MLB’s argument doesn’t have any merit.”
