Mychel “Snoop” Dillard and Tauheed Epps (rapper 2 Chains), the owners of Atlanta’s Escobar Restaurant and Tapas, are being sued by Escobar, Inc. over trademark infringement claims, TMZ Wednesday first reported.
Escobar, Inc. is seeking $10,000,000 in damages for the restaurant’s use of its trademarks including the image and likeness of the late Pablo Escobar, according to court documents obtained Thursday by What Now Atlanta (WNA).
Roberto Escobar, the brother of the deceased Colombian drug lord, owns the company which holds 100+ copyrights in the U.S. and 30 trademarks.
The suit was filed on June 17, 2020, with the U.S. District Court Central District of California.
Reps for Escobar Restaurant, which is situated in Castleberry Hill at 327 Peters St SW, did not immediately respond to WNA’s request for comment Thursday.
