Pasadena, CA – Doniger / Burroughs obtained its second victory of the day before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals when the panel issued an order reversing the district court’s entry of summary judgment for the alleged infringer in a dispute over the copying of multiple fabric designs. The firm’s client had created three different textile designs and provided samples of the designs to one of its customers. It is alleged that the customer then copied the designs through an outside source and sold garments bearing the designs to fashion industry buyers. The district court had ruled that no infringement had taken place, but the 9th Circuit found that ruling to be in error. The case will now proceed to trial.
Stephen M. Doniger, Esq. of Doniger / Burroughs argued for appellants.
Erika Van Loon, Esq. of Glaser Weil LLP argued for appellees.
