LOS ANGELES – A New York-based luxury lifestyle brand claims a Lakewood retail store is selling goods that unlawfully use its marks.
Michael Kors LLC filed a complaint on Feb. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against M R Enterprises, Deepak Narula and Does 1-10 alleging trade dress infringement and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages to its business and reputation.
