North Olmsted is a city in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, with a population over 34,000. It is home to Moen Incorporated, a well-known fixture and faucet company, as well as to the operations center of CommutAir, a regional airline.
In November 2009, auto dealers in Bedford filed a lawsuit against North Olmsted dealers seeking an injunction to prohibit North Olmsted dealers from using the phrase “Auto Mile” in their promotions. The Bedford group of auto dealers have been referred to as the “Bedford Auto Mile” for about 50 years and claim that the phrase was exclusively theirs, and North Olmsted’s use of the phrase will confuse customers. The North Olmsted dealers claim that the suit lacks any merit, for several dealers throughout the country already use the term in their promotional materials.
If you’re from North Olmsted and find yourself embroiled in a lawsuit, or are considering filing one, you will most likely find yourself at the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, located in Cleveland.
