One of Jared Kushner‘s publications is stepping on the toes, and name, of a competitor in NYC … according to a lawsuit.
Ivanka Trump‘s husband famously owns New York Observer, but also has a company called New York Luxury Publishing. According to the docs, his publishing co. started printing a magazine called “Scene in New York” in 2013.
Gregg Moramarco has a big problem with that. He filed the lawsuit, saying Kushner’s mag is way too similar to his — “Scene New York” — which he’s been cranking out since 2006.
In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Moramarco says the similarity is creating confusion and deception in the marketplace … which is hurting his bottom line. He wants the President-elect’s son-in-law to immediately stop the presses, and fork over more than $500,000 in damages.
It’s odd, when we search “Scene in New York” on the Internet, the only thing that comes up is “Scene” magazine … which Kushner does own. So, it’s unclear what Moramarco’s beef is at this point.
We’ve reached out Kushner and his publishing company … no word back yet.
