Dunnes to appeal in design case

DUNNES Stores is to appeal a High Court ruling ordering it to stop copying designs for women’s clothing which a British fashion company claims it originated.

Last month, Karen Millen won its High Court action alleging Dunnes breached EU regulations by copying a woman’s shirt and top.

The case was back before the court yesterday for Ms Justice Mary Finlay Geoghegan to rule on costs and for Dunnes to account to Karen Millen for profits made on sales of the copy garments, sold by the supermarket chain through its Savida range.

Yesterday, counsel for Dunnes, Richard Nesbitt, said it intended to appeal the case to the Supreme Court and it was proposed to apply for an early hearing date. He asked that a stay be put on the order of the High Court on the issue of taking of account of profits made along with the costs issue. Ms Justice Finlay Geoghegan agreed to the stay on the undertaking the appeal would be expedited.
