Yeager Fights To Retain Control Of His Name

Has Filed A Petition With SCOTUS In Long-Running Case

Retired Air Force General Chuck Yeager has filed a petition with the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) related to a suit against a memorabilia website he says used his name without authorization. The website Law 360 reports that in the petition, Yeager says a legal principal known as "laches" should apply in the case rather than California state law, and that a lower court "erred" in "rigidly applying California's statues of limitations" in the case.

Laches is the legal doctrine that an unreasonable delay in seeking a remedy for a legal right or claim will prevent it from being enforced or allowed if the delay has prejudiced the opposing party, according to definitions posted by uslegal.com.

Yeager is in a dispute with a website that he had previously authorized to sell his memorabilia. But after the relationship soured, the site reportedly continued to use his name without his authorization. The Ninth Circuit Court said he did not file the suit before a deadline spelled out in California's statutes of Limitations.

Veterans Amicus has joined Yeager's cause. The advocacy group has posted a petition on its website in support of Yeager's position in the the dispute, and seeking donations for a legal fund. The group says that "[C]ontributions exceeding actual expenses to file the current Amicus Brief(s) will go to helping veterans with legal issues such as this or will go to a worthy charity supporting the military."
