CaseCast™ – "What you need to know"
The defendant is a “creator of fashions.” She hired the plaintiff to help her make money in this business. They both signed an agreement that gave the plaintiff the exclusive right, subject to her approval, to place her endorsements on designs and to place her designs on sale or to license others to market them. Per their agreement, Plaintiff would get half of all of the profits he made from any of such contract. The defendant, however, broke this deal by placing her endorsements on products without his knowledge and not sharing any of the money from those deals with him. He then bought this claim.
