Christian Louboutin vs. YSL Suit Dismissed

Everyone can breathe a sigh of relief! WWD reported that Manhattan federal district court entered a final order Thursday confirming that Christian Louboutin has no further claims against Yves Saint Laurent over red monochrome shoes and dismissed the lawsuit.

After a long 18 months of legal battleing, a New York federal appeals court in September backed the validity of Louboutin's red-sole trademark. However, the French shoemaker would only be able to protect its mark when it came to red-soled shoes with contrasting uppers. That gave YSL the right to continue selling its monochrome red pump. Louboutin first sued YSL in April 2011. YSL later dropped its claims against Louboutin after the case moved back to a New York federal district court for further evaluation of their counterclaims. Yesterday's court order just confirms closure of the litigation between the parties.
