Skechers sued for $10m

Footwear brand Skechers has been sued for $10m (£6.08m) for allegedly exploiting models.

In a complaint filed at Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday August 12, models who appeared in Skechers advertising campaigns have alleged that the California-based company did not adequately recompense them for how frequently or far reaching their images have been used in campaigns, according to reports.

The plaintiffs are understood to be 11 models who have all said that Skechers engaged in “unauthorised marketing and advertising of [their] goods and services” and are seeking at least $10m (£6.08m) in damages, as well as an injunction against further use of the images.

Skechers, which has a presence in 41 countries worldwide, declined to comment.
