Coach, Inc. drops lawsuit against Winchester merchant

The maker of a prestigious line of gifts and accessories agreed to drop a federal lawsuit Feb. 19 against a Winchester merchant it had accused of selling fake versions of its products.

The papers filed in U.S. District Court by Coach, Inc. and Coach Services, Inc. gave no reasons why the company was dropping the complaint against Huong Ngoc Nguyen, owner of Europe Nails and Perfect Nails in Apple Blossom Mall. Attorneys for the two sides could not be reached for comment.

The complaint stated that Coach investigators and Virginia State Police raided the store on July 19. They seized 32 handbags, 15 wallets, jewelry, watches, footwear and other items bearing the Coach trademark from the two stores.

The suit claimed that Huong had no authorization from Coach to use its trademarks in the sale of its products.

In an answer to Coach's complaint, Huong admitted that the seized items were imitations of Coach products, but denied Coach's accusations that they signaled she knew of "counterfeiting activity" in her store.
