Nasty Gal is suing online retailer NewNasty.com for trademark infringement. The Fashion Law exclusively reveals that the complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central Division of California on Monday. It claims that New Nasty founder Charamon Hunter's "unauthorized use of the NEW NASTY trade name and trademark … deprives Nasty Gal of the ability to control the consumer perception of the quality of the services marketed under the NASTY GAL mark, and places Nasty Gal's valuable reputation and goodwill in the hands of others."
