Christian Louboutin S.A. v. Yves Saint Laurent America Holding, Inc.
696 F.3d 206 (2d Cir. 2011)
The Firm successfully filed an amicus brief on behalf of long-standing client, Tiffany & Co., urging reversal of the district court’s decision denying injunctive relief to the plaintiff. The brief explained that the district court applied the “aesthetic functionality” doctrine far too broadly. The Second Circuit reversed the relevant portion of the district court decision; the Court followed the arguments we made in the amicus brief.
