Gucci is not taking this lying down!
After a federal judge only rewarded the company $4.7 million in their bitter three-year battle against GUESS on Monday, a lawyer for Gucci says that they were shocked with the "surprisingly low" outcome.
Uh, yeah! After all, they were asking for a whopping $221 million in damages after alleging that GUESS copied their diamond "G" pattern and signature red and green strip on one of their shoe styles.
So, now Gucci is going to try to get their money elsewhere. They've just filed similar lawsuit$ overseas in China, Italy, and France.
Will this ever end???
