It frequently seems that Dov Charney, the owner of American Apparel, is recognized as much for his office space escapades in terms of his super-successful garments outlines. When you look at the rash of intimate harassment matches which were brought against Charney, the litigants tend to be underlings moaning about Charney’s allegedly flamboyant behavior at work. But, within the most recent fit experienced by Charney and United states Apparel, Charney might finally be facing off against a personality as powerful, or at the very least as quirky, as their own.

Yesterday, movie symbol Woody Allen sued American Apparel in Manhattan federal court for about $10 million for using their picture on billboards as well as on the world wide web. The suit, based on this AP report, complains of an American Apparel billboard featuring a-frame from “Annie Hall, ” a film that won Allen a best manager Oscar, showing Allen dressed as a Hasidic Jew with a long beard, black cap and Hebrew text. (The billboard, pictured, is from the spot of Alvarado and Sunset in L.A. While Charney is Jewish, it is not clear what connection consumers are designed to draw between US Apparel clothing and Allen dressed as a Hasidic jew.)

According to the report, the match alleges that billboard falsely implied that Allen sponsored, endorsed or ended up being of United states Apparel, and accuses the business of “blatant misappropriation and commercial utilization of Allen’s image” and records your company on its website promotes itself as you known for “provocative photography.”
