Nygård Inc. may be a privately held company, but occasionally information about some of its financial expenditures can be gleaned from public sources.
That’s the case with a lawsuit filed by Nygård and its affiliated company, Nygård Ltd., last month against Haggar Clothing Co. and its women’s apparel division, Jerell Ltd. The lawsuit, alleging trademark infringement and unfair competition under both federal and California state laws, was filed in a Los Angeles federal district court. Officials at Haggar haven’t responded to requests for comment on the action.
