Doniger / Burroughs Victorious at Trial on Behalf of Apparel Industry Client

Los Angeles, CA – In December, 2010, a team of Doniger / Burroughs attorneys, led by partner Scott Burroughs, obtained a convincing jury verdict on behalf of firm client, L.A. Printex Industries, Inc.

In a case involving an alleged license to use a copyrighted textile design, importation of garments from China, sales by a national retail store, and claims of copyright infringement, the jury was persuaded by the the presentation given by Mr. Burroughs, and returned a powerful verdict awarding L.A. Printex significant statutory damages. This amount, $150,000.00, is the maximum amount that the jury could have awarded under the Copyright Act.

Pursuant to the Copyright Act’s provision allowing the recovery of attorneys’ fees, a motion for attorneys’ fees was then filed by Doniger / Burroughs. The case resolved amicably soon thereafter.
