ADL Taking Mehdi
to Court Over Use of
'Anti-Defamation' Name

NEW YORK—The Anti-Defama-
tion League of Bnai Brith has
served a summons and complaint
- on Mohammed T. Mehdi, executive
director of the so-called "Arab
Anti-Defamation League" (AADL)
in an effort to have the group en-
joined from using the phrase "An-
ti-Defamation League" as part of
its name.
According to Arnold Forster,
ADL's general counsel, the com-
plaint to the New York Supreme
Court charges "that the Arab
group seeks to exploit-the name
of ADL by using the phrase 'Anti-
Defamation League' which is a key
and distinctive identifying part of
its name. If the Arab organization
is permitted to use its present
name, the good will of ADL will
be diluted and destroyed. °'
Samuel Gottlieb, a New York
attorney, is acting as ADL's spe-
cial- counsel- in this case.
Forster noted that recently the
New York Supreme Court "for-
mally recognized ADL's absolute
right to the exclusive use of Its
name and its symbol 'ADL' and
enjoined others froni using a -or:
any simulation or imitation of It.
ADL will, of course, again defend
the use of its name in this newest
attempt to exploit and misappro- I.
priate it."
