T.J. Samson countersues group for trademark infringement

GLASGOW — T.J. Samson Community Hospital has countersued the six individuals challenging the authority of its board of directors with trademark infringement, in a civil case filed in U.S. District Court Friday.

A petition for declaration of rights was filed in Barren Circuit Court earlier this month on behalf of D.T. Froedge, Glasgow City Council member Wendell Honeycutt, Horse Cave Mayor Randall Curry, Cave City Mayor Dwayne Hatcher, Lyon Hutcherson and Curtis Peil, a group of local residents who were elected on May 25 to try to become a new board of trustees for the hospital. The election of the challenging board was conducted by six descendants of T.J. Samson’s original financial contributors. Those original contributors had voting rights in the 1920s to elect a board of trustees for the hospital. Though the hospital’s articles of incorporation changed the voting procedure in 1968, the descendants conducted an election based on the belief that those voting rights were inheritable and that the 1968 amendment to the articles of incorporation should be legally set aside. Those who were part of the election have voiced concerns that T.J. Samson is neglecting its duties as a community hospital. The Barren suit officially named the group of plaintiffs as the “Board of Trustees of T.J. Samson Community Hospital.”
