SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls-based funeral home has filed a federal trademark infringement lawsuit against another business.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/2tRcS2G) that the suit by Heritage Home for Funerals alleges that Heritage Cremation Providers, which provides similar services, has been improperly using the name “Heritage” in its advertising and marketing.

The lawsuit alleges that Heritage Cremation Providers is not licensed by the South Dakota Board of Funeral Services to perform cremation or related services in South Dakota. The complaint also says Heritage Cremation Providers, which is based in Colorado, is not registered to transact business in South Dakota by the secretary of state’s office.

The suit seeks unspecified damages.

Court documents do not list an attorney for Heritage Cremation Providers.
