Business gets judge to stop T-shirt sales

Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS -- The owners of Al and Alma's Supper Club won a temporary halt to the sale of T-shirts referring to the Minnesota Vikings party that took place on their boats.

Hennepin District Court Judge Harry Crump granted a temporary restraining order Friday to prohibit Metropolitan Collectibles from distributing any clothing or merchandise with the name Al and Alma's on it.

Al and Alma's claimed that T-shirts with a picture of a cruise boat and the slogan "I Got Laid at Al and Alma's" libeled and defamed the business and damaged its reputation.

The shirts, which have "MINNETONKA CRUISE LINES" and "S.S. VIKING" on the side, also infringed on Al and Alma's trademark, the supper club said.

Some Vikings players had a party on two of Al and Alma's boats in October. Authorities have been investigating whether players were involved in sexual misconduct on the boats.
