Fred Segal is in the midst of a legal battle in connection with the sale of the of 29,000-square-foot building located at 8100 Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles, California. According to a complaint filed early this month in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California by Sandow, the New York-based brand management company that owns the Fred Segal trademark, alleges that CormackHill LP, the new owner of the famed shopping complex, is on the hook for trademark infringement. The dispute specifically concerns the rights to display the Fred Segal insignia on the Melrose Avenue property following its acquisition earlier this year.
