Tacori Dismissing Lawsuit Against Scott Kay



Tacori wants to drop its seven-month-old lawsuit against Scott Kay over Kay’s Heaven’s Gates line, according to papers filed Sept. 28 with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

Tacori had charged that Heaven’s Gates infringed on its copyrighted reverse crescent designs. Kay denied the charges, claiming the line was based on the designer’s “vision of faith, protection, and commitment.”

According to a “statement of mutual dismissal,” the two parties have agreed that the complaint should be dismissed “with prejudice.”

Each party also agreed to pay their own legal fees.

Tacori had suffered a few setbacks in the case, including failing to get a restraining order and injunction against Scott Kay.

Citing the Jewish holiday, Scott Kay said it was still preparing a comment at press time, but noted that it will continue to market Heaven’s Gates. Tacori could not be reached for comment at press time.
