The Hungarian State Opera has asked the Hungarian cast members in its production of “Porgy and Bess” to self-identify as African American. The State Opera says on its website that the rights’ holders of “Porgy and Bess” noted that the Hungarian “production is not permitted in its current form and contradicts the work’s staging requirements.” Asking cast members to identify as African American appears to be the opera’s way around the dispute.

By Alma Fausto | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: January 11, 2019 at 12:34 pm | UPDATED: January 11, 2019 at 10:13 pm In a closely watched trial with possibly far-reaching legal implications, a federal jury decided Friday that the notorious Mongols motorcycle club must forfeit the logos worn by its members, finding in favor of prosecutors’ novel claim that there is a direct link between the club’s crimes and its well-known, trademarked insignia. The jury’s verdict Friday marked the end of the second phase of a trial focusing on forfeiture of assets. In the first phase last month, the jury found the club, which was established in Montebello in the 1970s, guilty of racketeering and conspiracy to commit racketeering.

Ventura, the highest profile member of the Mongols, took the stand as an expert witness in the midst of an ongoing federal racketeering trial in which prosecutors are attempting to gain control over the motorcycle club’s trademark name, a move that would allow law enforcement to bar the bikers from wearing the patches that adorn their vests. “Are you a member of the Mongols Motorcycle Club?” attorney Joseph Yanny, who is representing the Mongols, asked Ventura at the beginning of his testimony. “Yes I am,” replied Ventura, who later explained that he is currently an inactive member of the Mongols. “Are you a member of a gang?” Yanny asked. “No,” … [Read more...] about Jesse Ventura testifies at racketeering trial of his old motorcycle club
