Kim Kardashian & Old Navy Settle Ad Lawsuit
LOS ANGELES (CBS SF/AP) – Kim Kardashian has settled a lawsuit against San Francisco-based Old Navy, after she claimed the company violated her publicity rights by using a lookalike in one of its ads.
Kardashian filed the suit in July 2011. The reality star claimed the company’s use of a model who looked like her might confuse consumers about her actual endorsements. The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star has her own clothing store and shoe line.
No details about the settlement were filed with the court. Kardashian’s attorney said the lawsuit was settled to the mutual satisfaction of both sides.
The case was dismissed Tuesday in Los Angeles.
Kardashian had been seeking unspecified damages and an order barring Old Navy from using a lookalike model again.
