READ THE DOCS!

“To date, Counterclaim Defendants have indicated, without explanation, that they no longer have these documents in their possession, custody or control,” the filing continues. “Counterclaim Plaintiffs seek an order compelling the production of these documents and, in the event Counterclaim Defendants fail to produce them, an adverse inference.”

Parker explained the documents Kat Florence Design allegedly fail to possess are attachments to relevant emails, WhatsApp Messages, and photos, videos and other marketing materials containing Parker’s name and likeness.

“These documents are critical to refute KFD’s arguments that Ms. Parker did not perform her obligations in good faith and that KFD was unable to effectively promote its jewelry,” the filing read.

Kat Florence Design failing to produce the documentation “questions the integrity of Counterclaim Defendants’ production.”

In Kat Florence Design’s Response to Motion filed on December 11, 2018, they claim they were advised to “maintain all documents.”

“Thus, there should be no inference that the Plaintiff/Counter-Defendants have failed to maintain or destroyed any documents for production to the Defendants/Counter-Plaintiffs,” the response read.

Kat Florence Design explained how they have produced documents in their possession, custody and control.

The documents requested are in the hands of independent contractors, which as the WhatsAppMessages, which they do not have access. They have reached out and attempted to produce all documents responsive to the requests.

As for other documents, such as email attachments, Kat Florence Design doesn’t believe certain attachments are relevant to the case. However, they “will attempt to provide attachments that it has access to, regardless of relevance, and will produce those to Defendant.”

Parker confirmed the photos, videos and other marketing materials were received, the plaintiffs claim.

The jewelry company then alleged how the lawsuit was initially filed because of “multiple breaches” of the endorsement agreement from October 2015 to September 2016.

“After Plaintiff paid the Defendant over a million dollars as part of its ongoing contractual obligations the Defendant failed to attend the London opening of her own jewelry line and further failed to attend an alternative evening event as an agreed upon substitute,” the filing read. “Upon such failures and the multitude of earlier breaches engaged in by the Defendant, the Plaintiff ceased making payments.”

The actress agreed to license her name and likeness for marketing purposes in exchange for $7,500,000.

The company claimed she failed to return jewelry that had a value of $149,501.96.

In Parker’s amended response and counterclaim filed on October 15, 2018, she alleged the company “abruptly and without notice or explanation stopped making its quarterly payments to Ms. Parker.”

Kat Florence allegedly blamed “addition of new investors, who directed the company to suspend payments” in October 2016.

The mom-of-three claimed she is entitled to damages of no less than $6.125 million.
