Harley Flanagan Sues Cro-Mags Over Their Name

According to the New York Post, Cro-Mags founder Harley Flanagan is suing the group for allegedly using the name without permission. He claims the band was his idea when it formed it in 1981, and that they are guilty of copyright infringement, due to him apparently trademarking the “Cro-Mag” name for recording in 2010 and for merchandise in 2009 and then again in 2017. The suit goes on to say the other members took over in 2002 when “Flanagan’s first son was about to be born… and Flanagan had to stop touring to help with the baby.” Flanagan was previously arrested in July 2012 after attacking several members of the group with a knife at the CBGB Festival.
