Ivanka Trump will have to testify in infringed sandal design case

Italian brand Aquazzura claims the Trump’s fashion company copied one of its shoes. Judge limiting the testimony to two hours due to busy schedule

 

Italian Shoe Brand Aquazzura suede Ivanka Trump’s clothing company, for copying its $785 fringed sandal design to create her own cheaper $145 imitation.

Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump,  will have to testify later this month in court, an American judge said Friday.

In her ruling, District Court Judge in New York Katrina Forrest rejected Trump’s claim that she should exempt from the need to appear in the case, due to her schedule and demands as a White House superintendent.

 

 

“In spite of the severe time constraints that Mrs. Trump must have today,” the judge wrote in her three-page sentence, “In any case, the argument is that Ivanka Trump was personally involved in the events at the heart of the prosecution and therefore can not avoid an affidavit.”

The court limited the testimony time to two hours only, however, and ruled that it must be held in October this year in Washington.

Last year, Aquazzura filed a federal suit against Trump and its shoe maker Mark Fisher for infringing copyright on its design, unfair competition and deceptive trade.

The Italian company claimed that Ivanka Trump “copied almost every detail” of the “familiar shoe” is disturbed, “from its shape and shadow to the flower that covers the shoes to the tip of the heel.” The manufacturer who works with Trump denied the allegations in the news.

The shoe “Disrupted” by “Aquazzura” was an immediate success, and became the most familiar stylish of stars such as Jamie Chang, singer Solange Nooles – Beyonce’s sister – and model Kendall Jenner.
