In recent Kardashian news (that doesn’t involve pointlessly ragging on Kim K. for pregnancy weight gain), Khloe Kardashian Odom and husband Lamar Odom may find themselves on the wrong end of a lawsuit.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the state of New York have threatened to sue Rich Soil, the couple’s T-shirt company. A cease and desist letter has been sent to Rich Soil, asking that production of the “Liberty Tee” be stopped. Why? Governor Cuomo believes this particular graphic is a direct replication (or rip-off, if we’re being blunt) of the state’s “Pride of New York” symbol. The symbol was originally created to identify agricultural products grown in New York.
If Rich Soil fails to respond to the state’s request, legal action will likely follow. How this will unfold remains to be seen, as both parties (Cuomo and the Kardashian Odoms) have reputations to uphold. Cuomo may not want the state of New York to be associated with the Kardashian franchise (not to mention the inherent drama). As for Khloe, a certain show (cough… Kourtney and Kim Take New York cough) may be compromised.
