The Kardashian Sister-Khloe Has Been Ordered To Stop Selling ‘New York’ Emblem T-Shirtsts.
Governor Cuomo has ordered reality star Khloe Kardashian to stop selling t-shirts with an emblem resembling a New York state logo. Should Khloe and husband Lamar Odom not comply, the state may sue over the similarities between the crest and the emblem of the state Department of Agriculture’s Pride in New York symbol.
According to the New York Daily News, the administration has ordered a high end clothing line run by Khloe to cease selling a designer t-shirt that bears a circular logo featuring the Statue of Liberty surrounded by the words ‘New York’ and ‘Rich Soil’ – the name of the logo. State officials believe the logo resembles the Department of Agriculture created to identify food grown in New York. “The State of New York has invested substantial time, effort and resources creating the respect and goodwill associated with the trademark,” Susan Rosenthal, a lawyer for the Department of Agriculture, argued in a letter sent to Rich Soil last week.
The Kardashians are no strangers to high profile lawsuits and have won their fair few too. Kim and Kourtney were named in a $5 million lawsuit against QuickTrim, a weight loss product they endorsed. Khloe and Lamar are estimated to be worth about $70 million.
If Rich Soil fails to respond, Rosenthal warned that the state will take legal action.
