Ivanka Trump ordered to testify over designer shoe fraud allegations


Forcing Ivanka Trump to be deposed "would be an unnecessary distraction and would interfere with her ability to perform her duties at the White House", they stated.

A judge has ordered Ivanka Trump to testify in a dispute with an Italian shoemaker over one of her company's shoe designs.

"The public statements of Mrs. trump about the active and comprehensive management of brand, lead to the reasonable conclusion that the shoes could not be released without her approval".

In his next game, Silva scored a hat-trick against the Faroe Islands, when Ronaldo added one goal in another 6-0 victory. Mexico's all-time top scorer grabbed his 48th worldwide goal from 93 appearances after some awful defending by Portugal .

In such a situation, "a deposition is appropriate", the judge said.

"Accordingly, she can not avoid a deposition in this matter". The proceedings are to be held by the end of October and can take place in Washington, D.C., where Trump relocated at the beginning of the year from New York City, where her business has its headquarters.

Her manufacturer has flatly rejected the charge. The company alleged that Trump and Fisher had plagiarized one of their shoe models, called "the Wild Thing" by creating an identical copy and launching it under a different name.

Aquzzurra said Ms Trump's "Hettie" shoe design is too close to that design to be a coincidence.

The trademark infringement lawsuit was initially filed by designer shoemaker Aquazzura against Ivanka's company, IT Collection LLC, in June past year. Its lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

"My involvement was strictly limited to the final sign-off of each season's line after it was first reviewed and approved by the company's design team". "That is the stuff of which factual disputes in litigation are made". Trump can only be questioned for two hours and that it must occur on her turf in Washington DC.

We're really cautious of that. "What should we name ours?", she wondered. "I know they ( Seed Beauty ) do make a mass volume". That's where the new beauty brand's first product, a cream contouring kit, comes in.

Aquazzura, in its lawsuit, said its shoe designs had "skyrocketed to fame in the fashion world" since the company was formed in 2011, with its footwear "coveted by fashionistas and celebrities alike". According to the lawsuit, Trump's company stopped selling another shoe after Aquazurra complained. Aquazzura's "Wild Thing" shoe is priced at $785, with the soft suede sandal available in a "vivid lipstick red" color with fringe at the front and "sensuous ties that wrap around the ankle" adorned with "flirty tassels".
