Doniger / Burroughs Prevails on Summary Judgment in Fashion Industry Dispute

Venice, CA – Premier Fabrics, a fabric design studio with offices in Los Angeles and New York, brought suit against two companies that had copied one of Premier’s proprietary textile designs and sold garments bearing the unauthorized copies. The defendants denied infringement, and the case progressed to the summary judgment stage. In a ruling issued on December 21, 2015, the Court granted Premier’s motion for summary judgment and found that the defendants had committed copyright infringement through their unauthorized exploitation of Premier’s proprietary copyrighted work. The case will now proceed to trial on ancillary issues and damages.

Premier is represented by Scott Alan Burroughs and Trevor W. Barrett of Doniger / Burroughs. For additional information, call Grace Garcia at (310) 590-1820.
