    Rick Hilton asks judge to dismiss HairTech lawsuit

    Reported by Beverly Hills Courier

    An attorney for Paris Hilton and her father asked a judge today to dismiss portions of a $35 million lawsuit brought by a hair accessory company that alleges the socialite wore a rival’s extension product in violation of a contract.

    Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gregory W. Alarcon did not immediately rule, saying he wanted to mull the issues further and would decide by the end of the day.

    HairTech International Inc. of Irvine and its founder, Chris Volek, filed its breach of contract and fraud suit Aug. 11, alleging the 29-year-old heiress broke her promise to wear and promote the product for three years and instead wore the extensions of a competitor.

    But lawyer Michael E. Weinsten, representing the Hiltons, told Alarcon that Paris did not commit fraud, arguing she would not have agreed to exclusively wear a company’s hair extensions for three years because her professional commitments require her to change her hairstyle often.

    “Obviously, that’s an absurd allegation,” Weinsten said.

    He said his client was only obligated to lend her name and likeness to the HairTech product and to make four annual public appearances on behalf of the company.

    The lawyer said the fraud and breach-of-contract claims should be dismissed against Rick Hilton because he never said anything false to HairTech or Volek.

    Weinsten also said neither Rick Hilton nor the Beanstalk Group, his daughter’s licensing agency, were parties to her contract with the firm.

    HairTech attorney Christopher Brainard said he has witnesses who could testify that Hilton’s father assisted his daughter in the contract negotiations and that she was seen buying a competitor’s extensions.

    Le Bonitas, maker of the PH lingerie/beachwear collection, wants to sue Paris Hilton Enterprises for lack of cooperation

    Reported by Court House News

    An Italian fashion company claims it paid Paris Hilton Enterprises a 97,500 euro advance for the right to use Hilton’s name and image on its clothing, but Hilton refused to “review and respond” to any its designs, making it impossible for it to bring the clothes to market.

    Le Bonitas, of Bologna, claims it forked over the 97,500 euros, and guaranteed Hilton royalties on sales. Under the licensing agreement, Paris Hilton Enterprises (PHE) had to review and respond to each of Le Bonitas’ submissions within 10 days. If Hilton did not, “such submission shall be disapproved.”

    Citing the rigid timelines for the 2009-2010 Fall-Winter fashion year, Le Bonitas said it “encountered frequent and numerous difficulties” developing its clothing lines “because PHE did not engage in good-faith in the approval process by failing or refusing to ‘review and respond’ to required submission with approvals, rejections or comments/feedbacks in a timely fashion.”

    In fact, it claims that its licensing agent told it on Oct. 28, 2009, “that Paris Hilton had been traveling and had not even reviewed the presentation, let alone responded with approvals, rejections or comments/feedback.”

    Le Bonitas claims that “PHE had, de facto, refused to engage in the approval process in any substantive, meaningful, constructive or commercially meaningful way.”

    It seeks at least $200,000 for breach of contract and its out-of-pocket expenses. It is represented by Martin Garbus.
