Thom Browne Wins Lawsuit Against Adidas

Adidas has lost the lawsuit against Thom Browne. The German sportswear brand sued the American designer for $8 million, accusing the latter of a trademark infringement.

The trial lasted nine days, with the jury finding in favor of Thom Browne. “We are pleased that the jury found that at no time did Thom Browne, Inc. infringe on any of Adidas’s trademarks,” read a statement from the designer.
