Mike Lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch

Jersey Shore cast member Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has a lawsuit against the clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch. Back in August, Abercrombie & Fitch released a press release offering to pay the Jersey Shore cast members, and Mike specifically, to NOT wear their clothing line as they felt it was bad for their image. In the lawsuit, Mike claims that the publicity stunt by Abercrombie & Fitch back in August was used to sell clothes using his trademarked phrases.

In the lawsuit, Mike “The Situation” claims:

Starting in August 2011, Defendant (the company) embarked on a grand, worldwide advertising campaign using Sorrentino’s name, image and likeness to create brand awareness for its products by falsely claiming that Defendant had offered money to Sorrentino if he would stop wearing Defendant’s goods

[Abercrombie & Fitch] has significantly profited off of the use of its false affiliation with Sorrentino, and it has wrongly used Sorrentino’s name, image and likeness for advertising purposes in violation of applicable law.

The lawsuit also claims Abercrombie & Fitch improperly used T-shirt designs featuring the phrases “The Fitchuation” and “GTL…You Know The Deal,” and claims that Abercrombie & Fitch “obviously intended to create a false association” with Mike “The Situation.”

That offer was never made to Sorrentino, nor was it ever conveyed to Sorrentino by a representative

Anna – Snooki for Halloween last year

My name is Annalisa but I like to be called Anna. 100% Italian and I’m probably the biggest Jersey Shore fan you’ll ever meet, ask anyone I know. I’ve been a supporter since day one. I could be a cast member because I live GTL, I’m DTF and DTS, FPC is my motto, and I’m apart of the GFA. I’ve met Snooki and Jwoww, seen the entire cast film the last episode of Season 5, and watched them all leave the house. I was Snooki for halloween last year and if I do say so myself, I looked friggen’ amazing. This year I plan to be Deena. People say I look exactly like Snooki-one of the greatest compliments one could get. I dress and feel like a guidette. Fistpumping is my thing. My room is decked out in Jersey Shore from quotes on my wall, to pictures, to a Jersey Shore calendar. This show is my life and I have no idea what my life would be like without it, this show has taught me how to live and i live my life just like the cast.

– Anna

Carmen Ochoa – krumpin at parties and falling all over

Cabs are herrrrrrrre!!! Cabs are herrrrrrrre!!! And so is Carmen Ochoa! Hi I’m Angela “Carmen” Ochoa! I go by the name Carmen, so remember that please! I would love to be the next member of the Jersey Shore because I’m an outgoing, fun, and always a happy person to be around with! I love to have fun and party hard with all my friends!

This past summer all I did was GTL! I tanned so much this past summer than any other summer in my life!!!! Every single Thursday I watch Jersey Shore with my MIKE,VINNY, PAULY D t-shirt, my hair in a pouf, my tight black skirt, high heels shoes, and don’t forget the sunglasses with the chains like Snooki when she got into the car accident in Italy!

Every week on Facebook I post a cute little status of Jersey Shore to watch it! My thing is that I love Jersey Shore because I love what they bring to the table and they are not boring! My craziest experience would have to be krumpin at parties and falling all over the place even in pools and on the ground!
