Lawsuit against company allegedly selling unauthorized Datsyuk merch going to trial in September

I don't know if you remember this, but waaaaaayyy back in February, Pavel Datsyuk's attorneys managed to stop a company called "Pasha LLC" from selling Datsyuk-branded merchandise without Datsyuk's consent. The injunction remains in place, but (via RedWingsFeed), WDIV's David Bartkowiak Jr. reports that the suit will go to trial this September:

The pre-trial is Thursday for a lawsuit against a website that allegedly sold Pavel Datsyuk merchandise without the hockey player's permission and without sharing any of the profit with him.

PashaSportsWear.com, which is now defunct, is accused of selling clothing with the Detroit Red Wings star's No. 13 on it.

"Despite continued and best efforts to amicably resolve the matter, the lawsuit was brought to address continued infringement of Mr. Datsyuk's name and celebrity and to prevent continued deception of the public," said an attorney representing Datsyuk.

The lawsuit has asked a judge to keep the website down while deciding whether the merchandise is authorized.

A trial date is scheduled for Sept. 9.
