BOTN has obtained a copy of a Cease & Desist letter sent by FC SESA's attorney to Mike O'Malley, the president of the Oceanside United Soccer Club. It appears that the OUSC club has committed Trademark Infringement, and by doing so apparently have been "fooling" some parents and players seeking to play with FC SESA that the OUSC and FC SESA are somehow connected, which is not factual.

Furthermore, the OUSC has been using the FC SESA trademark to further their club player membership. OUSC has been given until December 10, 2019 to cease and desist the use of the FC SESA mark in any and every form or litigation will follow.

BOTN believes that FC SESA will move swiftly to get this issue before a judge with an Order To Show Cause legal procedure.

Which mark? FC SESA, their name is their trademark and it appears that the Oceanside United soccer club has also been doing business and trading under both the Oceanside United soccer club and FC SESA. They can’t do that.

Surprised how/why a not for profit organization could/would use FC seas for any type of gain? I can’t imagine how that could help ousc - but who knows anymore

From the inception of Oceanside based FC SESA as a better and higher-end alternative to the OUSC, the OUSC club went on the offensive and what they are going be brought into for, IMO is indefensible. What I am trying to find out is whether or not it will just be the club that will be sued or will individual board members also be included should OUSC take a macho stand? Know Mike O'Malley, I expect him to act like the dick he is, and has shown himself to be to me and others and force litigation.

Oceanside soccer club is and was always scared of losing players. FC SESA is now growing quickly it seems. Didn't FC SESA start out of Oceanside originally?

Yes, and therein lies why the club did what they and are still doing. FC SESA still is based in Oceanside and I am of the belief that SESA has taken enough questionable behavior of crap from OUSC.

I'm trying to find out if the individual board members are also going to be sued if the club doesn't get religion by the Dec. 10 date they were given to cease and desist.

BTW, I understand that Karen Meagher is also somehow involved in this mess, but I have yet to get the details...but I will grin

Mike O'Malley is the worst president in the history of low-level oceanside soccer. He has no sense of soccer and even less clue on how to run the club. He is the reason why the club is a REC level at best. All the better players always leave and when parents address any issues with Mike all he does is dismiss people. The entire board is full of it as well. This is the problem with town soccer on Long Island! The boards are run by people who never even kicked a soccer ball growing up and to make it even worse they hire a 3rd party training organization like the Redbulls thinking they will be good for the club but instead, they are CRAP. Oceanside is bitter at FC SESA for being the real academy format and growing so quickly but the truth of the matter is oceanside should take an example from that and turn things around to save the players that really do play a good level of soccer. If you don't believe me then look at the RVC soccer club, they are bleeding and all the parents are leaving to FC SESA, East Meadow, and others. Good Guy Mike!!! you destroyed the club and we took our kids out of the club and so will others. Soon you will be left with kids that pick their nose on the fields lol. IDIOT!!!

Any Oceanside players/parents that are fed up with the BS should look at New Hyde Park. We left for their program 2 years ago and couldn't be happier! Their U12 girls program is off the charts... FTJ

I don't understand. This doesn't seem to make sense. Can somebody please post examples of OUSC using the Sesa name or symbol so I can see what they're talking about.

I can but I won’t at this time. Let’s see if O’Malley and his board fix the problem and adhere to the Cease & Desist letter.

If they don’t I will publish it along with the lawsuit papers after they are served.

It is my opinion that what OUSC is doing to FC SESA is lower than dog [****]. OUSC will be held accountable based on my conversations with FC SESA. The question I'm waiting to find out is if any of the board members individually are liable? Then again, the club probably has Directors Insurance which will probably cover them.

Crack pot outfit? OUSC will be the ones coming out of this as the crack pot outfit. Tuesday is only days away and I can tell you from experience this is no frivolous lawsuit. This lawsuit has teeth, big teeth. Laugh if you want, but this lawsuit is no joke.

I don't think there is anything frivolous about Trademark Infringement or Tortious Interference with someone's business, and that's just for starters. When all is done, we'll see who is a crack pot outfit.

All that I can tell you is O’Malley and company blinked. That is the good news. The bad news is O’Malley and his executive bunch are still in the soup as they didn’t go far enough. Clearly O’OM & company are under estimating FC SESA.

I expect the OUSC and another entity to find themselves hanging out with their lawyers. The party has just started.

I will share more when I know more, but to be redundant, these legal issues with at least one other party besides OUSC are just getting started.

This is not about getting a life. This is about not getting ripped off, not having outsiders interfere with a person's livelihood, this about not doing illegal manipulations, and this is about getting justice.

Mike O'Malley is an arrogant prick surrounded by a board that apparently is condonning or encouraging the behavior that may be very embarrassing to the club and an other Oceanside entity.

I'm sure when the time comes other named people will be outed when the next few steps are enacted. Those processes I am told have already begun. I believe in the end OUSC will be found to have acted improperly, it should cost the club money, and may be costly either monetarily or to one's reputation. My 2 cents.

Here's another angle to consider with OUSC. The Board will likely incur legal fees. Fees that are going to, in all likelihood, be paid out of the monies collected from registrations paid for by the good people of Oceanside. That entire board needs to be replaced. Perhaps OUSC should have formed some sort of alliance with SESA for their better players to rise to, not fraudulently putting it out there they were part of SESA. More sleaze in youth sports by adults with huge egos and low standards. Yeah what a great example for the kids of Oceanside. I applaud all the clubs out there that are doing it right and have high standards!

I believe the monetary aspect as quoted in the cease and desist letter will be for treble damages. The discovery part and depositions of the board and at least one outside influencer should it get there could be mind blowing.

I can confirm that two avenues for discovery of documentation has already been put into motion.
