California Retailer Sues Ivanka Trump’s Company For Profiting Off Political Ties

A California-based fashion retailer filed a class-action lawsuit against Ivanka Trump’s brand accusing it of having a trump card that gives it an unfair advantage among competitors -- her father.


Modern Appealing Clothing claims the First Daughter’s company, Ivanka Trump Marks LLC, is profiting off her political connections, citing President Trump and her husband Jared, according to SFGate.

The San Francisco-based fashion boutique points to the recent sales boost Trump’s brand got after the President slammed Nordstrom on Twitter for dropping his daughter’s brand. Shortly after, Kellyanne Conway, who serves as a counselor to the President, told people to “go buy Ivanka stuff” during a Fox News interview. Ivanka’s company sales had a 346% spike between January and February when compared with the same time period last year despite getting dumped by Nordstrom and other retailers like Neiman Marcus, Sears, and Kmart, according to CourthouseNews.


The class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of women’s clothing retailers throughout California seeks unspecified damages as well as a restraining order against her brand from selling clothes in California.

Enforcer Gold Corp: Nose to the Ground

“I walked up the Galena Vein, about twenty meters north of a nice rock sample which turned out to assay over 510 grams per tonne gold. Nose to the ground. I took my hammer out and tried to break off a piece of rock where I could see some visible gold. The specimen was the size of the palm of my hand, it was loose, but it was stuck on something, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I realized it was stuck by a 1 inch piece of gold. I tried to keep a straight face, but honestly, I had never seen anything like that before, it is simply spectacular. That sample was never assayed, it’s just too pretty to waste on getting an assay number, I know the number would be extremely high, it’s museum quality” said Roebuck.
