May 21 A federal judge on Monday ordered Guess
Inc to pay Gucci $4.66 million and to stop selling
products that copied the Italian luxury goods company's
U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin denied Gucci's bid to
recover damages reflecting lost sales or harm to its brand.
Gucci had accused Guess of trying to "Gucci-ize" its product
line by selling wallets, belts, shoes and other items whose
designs copied or mimicked its own.
Scheindlin last month oversaw a three-week nonjury trial in
the case in a Manhattan courtroom.
