Federal Judge Refuses To Dismiss Prince of Scots Vs. The Jones Group Inc., Jones Apparel Groups USA Inc., and Kasper A.S.L. LTD finding the claims have merit to proceed

The lawsuit alleges, among other things, unethical business practices, which include multiple breaches of contracts, false inducements, false promise, fraud, and tortious interference with prospective business relations.

New York, New York (PRWEB) February 02, 2017

U.S. District Court Judge Joseph F. Bianco has given Prince of Scots, led by its lawyers Barry Janay, Esq. and Claire Murphy, Esq. of The Law Office of Barry E. Janay, P.C., the go ahead in their lawsuit against The Jones Group Inc, Jones Apparel Groups USA Inc, and Kasper A.S.L. LTD, Case ID 2:15-cv-01641. The ruling, which was put on the court’s record on January 6, 2017 in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York, struck down a motion filed by the Jones Group et al. to dismiss the suit on several legal points, finding that Prince of Scots suit had merit.

The Jones Group had filed a motion to dismiss and charged that Prince of Scots “failed to state a claim upon which relief can be granted,” according to the court’s memorandum.

The New York fashion design and manufacturing firm, PRINCE OF SCOTS, LLC, filed a federal lawsuit against Jones Group, which include fashion icons, JONES, NINE WEST, and KASPER. Private equity firm, Sycamore Partners, purchased the Jones Group in April 2014. According to Exhibit One in the lawsuit, Sycamore Partners and Jones Group CEO Wesley R. Card, CEO were aware of the Jones Group dispute, the accounting irregularities, and undervaluing the debt owed to Prince of Scots prior to the purchase on April 8, 2014.

The lawsuit alleges, among other things, unethical business practices, which include multiple breaches of contracts, false inducements, false promise, and fraud to mislead PRINCE OF SCOTS into a strategic relationship to design and manufacture exclusive offerings for the Jones Group stable of companies and brands. The suit alleges what appears to be a systematic scheme of stealing designs, fabrics, and novel production methods whereby Jones would produce Prince of Scots developments through other companies.

The court documents allege Jones Group wrote purchase orders to Prince of Scots with values of one cent per unit well under the market value. Jones would then hold Prince of Scots hostage on payments and promises of future business, refusing to honor the market value financial commitments and fulfill the debt obligation.

PRINCE OF SCOTS’ designs have been manufactured and were successfully marketed by the Jones Group to such retailers as JCPenney, Macy’s, Boscovs, and Sears Canada.

Danser stated, “Their actions were an effort to harass, annoy, and oppress our business and deprive us of any economic opportunity. We were constant victims of threats and innuendo to hurt and damage our business and reputations.”

The Luckenbooth recipes follow, and if one wonders whence the name of the winner came, need look not further then the historical connection to Edinburgh from the reign of King James II in the 15th century to the early years of the 19th century.  The luckenbooths were situated on the Royal Mile were the original permanent  base for traders to become one of the city’s major market places for Jewelry and trinkets.  The Luckenbooth Brooch is a traditional Scottish Love Token.  One legend of the luckenbooth brooch is that it was a symbol of love and devotion given by Mary Queen of Scots to Lord Darnley. Another story is that it was an engagement brooch given to her by the Dauphin of France whom she later married. It may feature Scottish motifs like the St. Andrew’s Cross, or the thistle.   The Luckenbooth is the iconic Trademark Symbol of Prince of Scots.

The Benefits of Woolmark Wool!

Woolmark

Woolmark

Wool offers several levels of unique comfort to an interior environment. Its superior performance, in comparison to man-made fibres, saves money as furnishings and carpets will not need replacing as quickly. As well as providing a soft and luxurious feeling to furnishings and floorings, being a naturally occurring fibre it has so many other amazing benefits when used in home or public space interior design.

• Colour and Texture – Wool has excellent dye holding properties meaning woollen fabrics and floor coverings are available in every shade, pattern and texture. All of which combine to offer a stunning interior design.

• Durability with long lasting appearance – Wool is like a spring, it has natural crimp that allows it to return to its natural shape. Its complex coiled structure gives it great resilience against becoming flat and hard. Wool upholstery can also withstand perpetual use whilst retaining colour and form.

• Easy-care – The outside surface of wool fibre consists of a series of overlapping scales which means dirt sits on the surface making it extremely easy to remove with a simple vacuuming. This structure also means it does not absorb spills quickly allowing time for them to be easily blotted up.

• Naturally Anti-static – Wool generates very little static electricity. Static attracts lint, dirt and dust so its anti-static properties keep it cleaner for longer.

• Flame retardant –The high nitrogen and water content make wool a naturally fire retardant fibre which is hard to ignite. Wool does not melt, drip or emit fumes – the major cause of death in fire and also the major issue for restricting access by fire officers during incidents.

• Sound Insulation Properties – Wool is a natural acoustic insulator and can limit the spread of sound. It can help reduce sound reverberation and the transmission of noise from room to room and one level to another.

• Hypoallergenic – Wool is resistant to bacteria, mould and mildew that can trigger allergic reactions in people. Wool also has microscopic pores that respond effectively to changes in humidity making it unfavourable for the growth and breeding of the house dust mite whose allergens are one of the triggers for asthma attacks.

• Cleaner Internal Air – Enjoying a unique natural cell structure, wool can work in harmony with its environment. Not only does wool absorb harmful pollutants from the air, it does not re-emit them as it holds them permanently within its core. It’s estimated that wool used in interiors can help purify the air for 30 years.

• Energy Efficient – Wool has good insulation properties and by helping reduce heat transfer through floors, walls and windows, woollens can contribute to energy, financial and carbon savings arising in buildings.
