Short Description Plaintiff alleged that Kid Rock violated RICO laws for taking part in an illegal extortion scheme by laundering and exploiting his intellectual property. Specifically, the alleged illegal extortion scheme consisted of Kid Rock's successful defense of Plaintiff's previous trademark claim regarding the "Top Dog" trademark used by Kid Rock for his record label. Despite Kid Rock's having successfully demonstrated his ownership of the "Top Dog" trademark in previous litigation, Plaintiff effectively tried to pursue his claim once again, but under RICO laws. The court was not pleased with this, and granted Kid Rock's motion for summary judgment and for sanctions against Plaintiff. - SKR
