MILAN — A court in Isernia, Italy, has rejected a request to sequester the Gianfranco Ferré brand put forward by the label’s administrators in October, saying it did not have jurisdiction to make a decision in the case.
A legal source explained that the judge merely deemed Isernia was not the appropriate court to decide on the issue. The commissioners will now turn to the court in Milan, which has a section specializing in industrial and intellectual property, said the source. Isernia is the Italian city where Ferré’s previous owner, IT Holding, was based, while the brand is legally headquartered in Milan.
