A federal judge ordered Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corp. to pay Fendi $4.7 million for violating a decades-old injunction barring the off-pricer from selling the luxury brand’s trademarked goods without permission.
The retailer agreed to the prohibition in 1987 to settle charges that it sold fake Fendi products. Fendi North America Inc., the brand’s U.S. unit, filed a new infringement lawsuit in 2006 accusing Burlington Coat of continuing to sell counterfeit handbags.
