LOS ANGELES – A Culver City company alleges its trademark is unlawfully being used by a New York company.
Paige LLC filed a complaint on May 1 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Ramy Brook LLC and Does 1-10 alleging trademark infringement and unfair competition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff owns the Paige mark for use on clothes, shoes and accessories. It alleges the defendants are using its mark without its authorization or consent.
The plaintiff holds Ramy Brook LLC and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants' actions are allegedly willful, malicious, fraudulent, deliberate and intended to confuse the public.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for preliminary and permanent injunction, award statutory damages in the amount of at least $4 million, restitution of all profits from infringement, destruction of all materials bearing infringing marks, costs, attorneys’ fees, and further relief as the court deems just. It is represented by Rod S. Berman and Jessica Bromall Sparkman of Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP in Los Angeles.
