Louboutin Red-Sole Ruling on Hold in Yves St. Laurent Case

A judge will decide later whether to cancel Christian Louboutin SA’s trademark for high-fashion red-soled women’s shoes in the company’s lawsuit against Yves Saint Laurent America.

Louboutin’s lawyers urged U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero in New York not to convert his earlier refusal to bar Yves Saint Laurent from selling its own red-soled shoes into an outright cancellation of the U.S. trademark. The judge said today he will delay a ruling while Louboutin appeals his decision.
