AASP/NJ Files Suit Against Rockland Exposition Over NORTHEAST Show

The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) announced today it has filed suit to protect the intellectual property associated with its annual Northeast Trade Show from misappropriation by Rockland Exposition and David McCarey III. The action was brought in the U.S District Court for the District of New Jersey.

Rockland and McCarey formerly managed the show under contract from AASP/NJ but AASP/NJ is claiming that both parties are now attempting to operate a competing trade show for their own benefit not affiliated or sponsored by AASP/NJ.

AASP/NJ will hold the 32nd NORTHEAST 2009 auto body and mechanical repair services trade show March 20-22 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Seacaucus, N.J.
