LOS ANGELES – A New York corporation alleges one of its lace designs was used without authorization.
Klauber Bros. Inc. filed a complaint on March 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against The Wet Seal LLC; Seal123 Inc., formerly known as The Wet Seal Inc.; and Does 1 through 10 alleging copyright infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages to its business from having its lace design 7725 copied. The plaintiff holds The Wet Seal LLC; Seal123 Inc., formerly known as The Wet Seal Inc.; and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly sold garments that feature an unauthorized design derived from plaintiff's own design.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to enjoin the defendants from further infringing plaintiff's designs, award all profits to the plaintiff, monetary advantage, statutory damages, all legal fees, interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. It is represented by Stephen M. Doniger, Scott Alan Burroughs, Trevor W. Barrett and Justin M. Gomes of Doniger/Burroughs in Venice.
