CALIFORNIA — A California corporation is suing C-Life Group Ltd., doing business as Threadfast Apparel, a New York corporation, citing alleged unfair competition.
Color Image Apparel, Inc. filed a complaint on Dec. 12, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against C-Life Group Ltd., doing business as Threadfast Apparel alleging that the New York corporation used plaintiff's designs on their garments.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Color Image Apparel, Inc. suffered damages to their business as the result of their designs being used without their permission. The plaintiff holds C-Life Group Ltd., doing business as Threadfast Apparel responsible because the defendant allegedly misleads consumers that their products are approved and sponsored by the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to enjoin the defendant from further infringing plaintiff's designs, order the defendant to destroy all infringing materials, profits and damages, three times profits, punitive damages, all legal fees and interest, and any other relief as this court deems just. They are represented by Michael Adams, Benjamin Deming and Lucas Hori of Rutan & Tucker, LLP in Costa Mesa.
