Kasowitz Defeats Summary Judgment Motion Brought by Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Against Client Age Group
Justice Kornreich of the Commercial Division of New York Supreme Court issued a decision in favor of Kasowitz client Age Group and denied a summary judgment motion brought by Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia that sought to dismiss Age Group’s claims. The case involves Martha Stewart Living’s egregious breaches of its contractual obligations to Age Group, which had obtained an exclusive license from Martha Stewart Living to use the Martha Stewart brand on pet products. Martha Stewart Living breached the license agreement with Age Group by, among other things, directly impeding and interfering with Age Group’s ability to fully exploit its bargained-for exclusive license. The case is now set for trial.
The Kasowitz team is led by partners Marc E. Kasowitz and Albert Shemmy Mishaan and associate Thomas J. Amburgy.
