Christian Louboutin, Yves Saint Laurent Lawsuit

Christian Louboutin Prepared to "Fight Like Hell" Against Yves Saint Laurent, According To His Lawyer

>> After Christian Louboutin lost a bid to stop Yves Saint Laurent from selling red-soled shoes earlier this week, Louboutin's lawyer Harley Lewin has said he's prepared to “fight like hell to the end.” Lewin continued of the setback: “Deter me? Not at all. It’s early on in the game.”

Manhattan federal judge Victor Marrero also implied in his decision earlier this week that if the case continued, he would move to find for the defendant, Yves Saint Laurent, without a full trial — thus causing Louboutin to lose his red sole trademark, which was granted in 2008.

Marrero has ordered both parties to meet next Friday morning, Aug. 19, during which time Louboutin must “show cause why the record of this action as it now exists should not be converted into a motion for partial summary judgment canceling Louboutin’s trademark.” Louboutin is seeking at least $1 million in damages from Yves Saint Laurent.
