POLO SUING MAKER OVER BOGUS GOODS
NEW YORK — Polo Ralph Lauren Corp. is suing a local apparel maker for allegedly producing counterfeit versions of its shirts, T-shirts and socks.
The suit, filed in federal court, here, also accuses New York-based Shalor Designs Inc. of “altering or defacing genuine second-quality” Polo clothing and passing it off as first quality.
While not specifying the amount of compensation sought, Ralph Lauren estimates in court papers that the company has suffered damages “in excess of $1 million.” Polo is also seeking an injunction against Shalor.
Officials at Shalor could not be reached.
