In February, our blog covered Kim Kardashian's $10 million dollar lawsuit against U.K-based online retailer Missguided.
This week brought an important update in the case. On Tuesday, Chief Judge Virginia A. Phillips of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California issued a default judgment against Missguided, ordering the company to pay Kardashian $2.7 million in damages and $59,600 in attorney fees, and permanently enjoining the company from using Kardashian's marks in connection with the "sale, marketing, or distribution of its products."
Missguided did not respond, appear, or otherwise defend the case.
