The Situation lawsuit
The Situation‘s word is his bond — weeks after the “Jersey Shore” star threatened to sue some guido-themed lifestyle company for ripping off his “GTL” trademark … his lawyer filed a seething lawsuit to put the company out of business.

TMZ broke the story last weekend … Sitch fired off a cease and desist letter to a website called MyGTLFuel.com –  which sells everything from energy shots to tanning lotion — claiming they better quit exploiting his trademark … or they’d face legal action.

Well, MyGTLFuel hasn’t gone anywhere … so Situation filed suit earlier this week — asking a judge to force the site to cease all GTL-related operations and destroy any infringing merchandise.

Dana Valentino — who owns GTL Fuel — tells TMZ, The Situation has no case — insisting the “Jersey” star has applied for the “GTL” trademark, but doesn’t outright own it … yet.

Dana says he wants to settle the matter amicably — but he’ll defend his business to the end.
