ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - A judge has denied a request by Maryland’s largest union for a preliminary injunction to stop Gov. Larry Hogan’s campaign from using an apple logo to show support by teachers.

Hogan’s campaign said Monday the ruling by a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge means it can still use an apple image as a universally known symbol for education on campaign material.

Adam Mendelson, a spokesman for the Maryland State Education Association, says the union is confident in the merits of its case and that the court will ultimately decide that the governor’s campaign has infringed on the union’s registered apple trademark. He says the union will continue to defend the trademark in connection with phrases that imply the political endorsement of teachers.
