Forever 21's done it again. The mega-chain's been sued over fifty times for design infringement and yet they still manage to settle out of court. This time around they'll be writing a check to Trovata. Forever 21 made almost $600,000 off the striped tees, sweaters and blouses they ripped off down to the last button. Between that and legal fees and other damages we can't even imagine how much they agreed to pay Trovata to make the brand go away - and keep them quiet. Aside from the money, the settlement means there won't be any admittance of wrongdoing, copyright or design infringement. Their first trial ended with seven jurors siding with Trovata and one holding out which we'll go ahead and interpret our way. Forever 21's scared to go back to court, given their still technically clean slate, because once they lose a single trial the floodgates are officially open. So whoever sues them next, don't settle!
