Ashland Inc. Sues Centralia Oil Change Shop for Trademark Infringement & Counterfeiting

Ashland, Inc., which owns the well known brand Valvoline, has sued Specialty Lube, Inc., a Centralia oil change shop, as well as its owner for trademark infringement, unfair competition, unjust enrichment, trademark dilution, and deceptive business practices.  Apparently, Ashland sent investigators to Specialty Lube twice, and found that the oil which was placed in their cars, which was supposed to Valvoline was a counterfeit instead.
