Times Three Clothier LLC has filed a lawsuit against LF USA Inc. for patent infringement. LF USA is a U.S. subsidiary of privately held Li & Fung Limited, the Hong Kong-based sourcing and apparel manufacturing conglomerate.
The lawsuit, which was filed in Dec. 22 in Manhattan federal court, alleges that LF USA infringed several of its patents by making and selling products under the Logo Instant Chic by Lori Goldstein brand. The complaint also notes that it informed LF USA of the patents in question at least as early as Jan. 20, 2010, but LF USA manufactured and sold the knockoff garments despite a cease and desist letter on Sept. 21, 2011.
