Alabama pair sued by Kansas AG over alleged counterfeit Chiefs, Super Bowl gear

The top prosecutor in Kansas is suing three people – including two from Alabama – over alleged counterfeit Kansas City Chiefs and Super Bowl merchandise.

Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced in a news release Friday that two lawsuits were filed Thursday in Shawnee County District Court. The suits come as the Chiefs prepare to play the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in the championship game.

The suits allege that a Tennessee man and two people from Alabama were hawking the goods out of multiple tents in Topeka. The business went by the names of Novelties Jr. and Sports Connection Plus.

The lawsuits were filed against:

  • Philip Colwell, of Trelevant, Tennessee, d/b/a Novelties Jr.; operating five locations.
  • Jennifer Sugg, of Bessemer, Alabama, and Edward Sugg, of Helena, Alabama, d/b/a Sports Connection Plus; operating one location.

The release says the attorney general’s office is seeking a civil penalty of up to $10,000 for each violation, in addition to reimbursement of the cost of the investigation in both cases.
