Cincinnati Restaurateur Sues Jim Edmonds

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A Cincinnati restaurant owner is suing former Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds over the name of the Precinct, a restaurant he co-owns in downtown St. Louis.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Jeff Ruby filed a federal lawsuit against Edmonds’ business late last year. The suit alleges that Edmonds’ steakhouse infringes on the Ohio restaurant group’s trademark.

The St. Louis Precinct features police and sports memorabilia and is located next to the new city police headquarters building. The Precinct in Cincinnati opened in 1981 and occupies a former police patrol building.

Edmonds played for the Cardinals from 2000 to 2007. He retired from baseball in 2011.
