Paris Hilton smells a rat! Last year, the heiress, 33, filed a lawsuit against L.A. fragrance manufacturer Perfection Perfume for illegally selling near carbon copies of her popular perfumes — and now she’s asking the court to move the case forward, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Perfection Perfume, whom Hilton argues created products “bearing marks and designs identical to her trademark” scents, ignored the August 2013 lawsuit, forcing the star to file an Application for Default Judgment.
In April 9 court documents, Hilton claims she fears that the company’s failure to respond to the lawsuit has further damaged her brand, as “it is likely that Perfection Perfume has continued and will continue its counterfeit activities.”
The multi-millionairess demands $100,000, claiming the company damaged her profits and reputation. She requests that all parties meet in L.A. court on May 12.
Fortunately, Hilton is on a fragrance lawsuit winning streak: Last month, Hilton won a $27,000 lawsuit against overseas companies UK Fragrances and Z&Z Global Enterprises for also imitating her products.
