Charity honoring LBI 9/11 victim Bill Kelly, Jr. says apparel company stole its logo

The Bill Kelly Jr. Memorial Fund has given nearly one million dollars worth of scholarships to students at the University of Scranton. Their logo has been a shamrock with the stars and stripes of the American flag since the charity’s beginnings, just months after Bill Kelly, Jr. was killed in the September 11th terrorist attacks.

A Utah company now uses an identical logo and has refused to stop doing so.

The Kelly family has had to resort to legal action

“It’s like having someone walk on hallowed ground, like walking across his grave almost,” Kelly’s sister, Casey Hamilton told Jerry Carino of the Asbury Park Press.
