Battle Over Cleveland MLB Team Name and Logo Moves to the World Series

Monique Jilesen is quoted in the New York Times article Battle Over Indians’ Name and Logo Moves to the World Series on October 22, 2016.

Monique Jilesen, one of the lawyers for Cardinal, said the main platform for their case against the Cleveland Indians was most likely to be human rights organizations. The lawyers are seeking to establish that the name Indians is discriminatory.

“The reason we brought an injunction was because here was the unprecedented platform of Cleveland playing Toronto in the playoffs, which they had never done before,” she said.
