LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles County corporation alleges two companies sells garment bearing its designs.
L.A. T-Shirt & Print Inc., doing business as Riot Society, and Ben Kwok filed a complaint on Oct. 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Ross Stores Inc., All Access Apparel Inc. and Does 1 through 10 alleging copyright infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages from having their Ornate Elephant design copied and incorporated into other fabrics. The plaintiffs hold Ross Stores Inc., All Access Apparel Inc. and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly distributed garments that feature a design that is identical to plaintiff's designs.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek to enjoin the defendants, award plaintiff all profits, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Farhad Novian, Joseph A. Lopez and Sharon Raminfard of Novian & Novian LLP in Los Angeles.
