LAKE MARY, Fla., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A Florida high school said it is changing back to its old ram logo to avoid legal action from the Chrysler Group about the latest version of the goat.

The Seminole County school system said Lake Mary High, which adopted a ram logo similar to the big-horned emblem on the Dodge Ram truck a few years ago, will return to an older version of its logo after Chrysler, which manufactures Dodge trucks, threatened to take officials to court, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Wednesday.

"We are going to comply with the communication we got from Chrysler's attorney," school board attorney Ned Julian said.

Julian said the high school will first phase out its T-shirts and other merchandise bearing the offending logo and Chrysler has agreed to give officials until June to remove the massive logo from the center of the gym floor.
