LOS ANGELES – A New York retailer is accused of using a Los Angeles corporation's textile design in garments without permission.
Star Fabrics Inc. filed a complaint on Feb. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Saks & Co. LLC and Does 1 through 1 alleging copyright infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages to its business from having its fabric designs copied. The plaintiff holds Saks & Co.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks enjoin the defendants, award all profits and statutory damages to the plaintiff, all legal fees, interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. It is represented by Stephen M. Doniger, Scott A. Burroughs and Howard S. Han of Doniger/Burroughs in Venice.
