Kim Kardashian's company sued for $100 million over endorsement of smartphone case

Kim Kardashian's company sued for $100 million over endorsement of smartphone case

 

Kim Kardashian's company, Kimsaprincess Inc., is being sued for $100m for its endorsement of LuMee, the light-up phone case that makes it ideal for taking selfies.

Snaplight on Monday filed a patent infringement lawsuit in California federal court. According to the complaint, a man named Hooshmand Harooni filed a patent in 2013 for an "integrated lighting accessory and case for a mobile phone device."

Harooni then licensed his invention to Snaplight, which argues that "it has been extremely difficult for Snaplight to compete in the selfie case market" with Kardashian's promotion of LuMee to her 165 million-plus social followers across Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Urban Outfitters is also being sued for having "benefitted financially through increased sales of the LuMee selfie cases," reads the lawsuit.

Snaplight is asking the court to stop the reality star from further promoting and using the LuMee cases. The California-based company is also asking for $100 million in damages.

In November, LuMee filed a lawsuit against Snaplight for infringing on its patent. That case is currently pending in Delaware federal court. 

A rep for Kardashian said in a statement Monday evening: "The patent lawsuit filed by Snap Light has no merit and is just another attempted shakedown. Kim has done absolutely nothing wrong.”

Photos: EFCC arraigns pregnant woman, one other for forgery

The EFCC yesterday July 31st arraigned the duo of Ebenezer Joshua and Franca Johnson before Justice Abbas Ahman of the Kebbi State High Court on a three count charge of forgery. The accused persons who once worked together at a new generation bank allegedly conspired and forged the Certificate of registration of the Special Control Unit against Money Laundering (SCUML).

The scam came to light when the SCUML received two registration forms for clearance from a new generation bank bearing the names, Noble Women for Better Tomorrow Initiative and another, Support Initiative for Better Maternal Health. Upon receipt of the certificate, some abnormalities were discovered during verification, including the fact that the sector codes on the certificates were those allocated to construction companies and not NGOs.

Photo: 82-year-old woman brutally assaulted in unprovoked attack

Detectives in Lambeth,UK are appealing for information and witnesses after an 82-year-old woman was brutally assaulted in an unprovoked attack.

On Thursday, 27 July the victim, Catherine Smith, was out in her mobility scooter walking her dog in the Palace Road Nature Gardens, SW2, which is where she first saw the suspect.

Catherine then left the gardens and headed home to Lydhurst Avenue, SW2, arriving back at about 13:00hrs.

As Catherine arrived back at home the suspect was sitting on a wall outside her property. She then approached Catherine and repeatedly asked ‘where’s Tracey’, before demanding for money. Catherine said she did not know a Tracey and shut the door.

The suspect then asked Catherine if she could use her toilet. When Catherine said no, the suspect became aggressive and pushed open the front door causing Catherine to fall backwards and hit her head.

There was a struggle before the suspect grabbed the victim’s dog lead, wrapped it round her neck and started to strangle her. The suspect then made off in an unknown direction.

 

Catherine immediately called for help. Witnesses who heard her cry, rushed to her aid and then called the police.

Catherine was taken to a west London hospital with serious injuries. She has since been discharged.

The suspect is described as a black female, about 5ft 5ins tall, of slim build, with slick backed black hair. She was wearing a khaki coloured coat with a zip, multi-coloured trainers and tights.

DC Vicky Vincent, the investigating officer from Lambeth CID, said:

“This was a vicious unprovoked attack on an elderly vulnerable woman’s own front door. The attack has left her very distressed.

“We believe the suspect spotted Catherine in Palace Road Nature Gardens and for unknown reasons decided to follow her home, harass her and then brutally assault her.

“We would encourage anyone with information or any witnesses to contact us as a matter of urgency so we can bring the person responsible for this heinous crime to justice. Anyone with information or any witnesses should contact Lambeth CID on 07785774447, 101 or Tweet @MetCC."

Sad: Newborn Twins And Their 21 Month Old Sister Orphaned After Their Mother Dies The Same Day As Their Father’s Funeral

Welcome to Meme's Blog

Sad

Tragedy struck a young and beautiful family twice within weeks. On July 11th, young father, 26 year old Jevaughn Suckoo was shot and killed at the Renaissance Apartments, in West Palm Beach, Florida.

3 days later, his girlfriend Stephanie Caceres, 24, who was pregnant with their twins, gave birth to beautiful and healthy twins, Jevaughn Junior, and Lailah.

Stephanie took to Facebook to post about the loss of her boyfriend the day after giving birth.

“I just don’t understand how someone can have the heart to leave three kids without a father especially two that never got the chance to even meet him,” she posted. “They didn’t deserve this! I’m trying I really am to stay strong but this has to be the toughest battle I’ve ever had to fight.”

2 days after the child birth, Stephanie suffered complications from an infection that resulted from her C-section and was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit. After 10 long, hard days of fighting for her life, Stephanie succumbed to the infection and lost the fight on July 26th, the same day as Suckoo’s funeral.

The couple already had a 21 month old daughter, Kailanie Suckoo.

Suddenly the newborn twins and 21-month old Kailanie are without parents.

"Just complete shock, completely devastated," said Joni Saunders, aunt of 26-year old , the man who was killed.

Saunders was joined on Thursday, by Irma Meza, mother of 24-year old Stephanie Caceres, the woman who died.

Saunders and Meza spoke at the doctor's office in Lake Clarke Shores, where Caceres worked.

The women said they were dealing with the sudden deaths of their loved ones, and the challenge now of caring for the couple's three small children.

"I think right now we're just very focused on the children, making sure that they're okay," said Saunders.

Saunders said the toddler adored her father.

"He walks into the room, and nobody else existed for her," said Saunders. "Same thing with Stephanie. She was such a dedicated mom."

Meza explained she's diabetic, and said Stephanie always told her she would take care of her. Meza said she never she imagined Stephanie not being around, and Meza would be the one providing care for the children.

At the doctor's office, diapers, formula and other items collected for the children, took up a large portion of a medical supply room.

A GoFundMe account was created for the children and over $98k have been raised for them. Plus, several people donated lots of baby food, diapers, clothers etc for the children and their upkeep.

Saunders and Meza said they are overwhelmed by the outpouring from the community.

Police have yet to make any arrests in the shooting death of their father.

“A Lot Of People Think I Am Stupid And Foolish, They Believe I Am An Illiterate”- Comedian, Mr Ibu

“A Lot Of People Think I Am Stupid And Foolish, They Believe I Am An Illiterate”- Comedian, Mr Ibu

Meme

Nollywood actor and comedian, John Okafor also known as Mr Ibu has revealed the downsides of fame and fortune.

The funny actor told Sunday Scoop that people think because of the stupid and foolish roles he plays in movies, he does not have meaningful things to say and believe he is an illiterate.

He said,

“A lot of people think I’m stupid and foolish because of the roles I play in movies. At times, when I have something meaningful to say, people don’t take me serious as they think I’m cracking jokes. People also think that I’m an illiterate but that’s not true. I come from a humble background and I struggled a lot while growing up. My parents weren’t well-to-do so I had to hustle to get whatever I wanted by myself. We were basically living from hand to mouth and our situation was quite pathetic. However, despite our lack, I still considered education as a priority and I always had it at the back of my mind that I would keep learning. I attended the Institute of Management and Technology for my tertiary education though I was a part-time student.”
Continuing, he said, “Due to lack of funds, there were times I had to stop schooling, but I always continued after sometime. What a lot of people don’t know about me is that I’m a deep thinker and I like to meditate on issues. For example, I have a lot of plans for Nollywood and I hope the government can pay more attention to this sector. Nollywood has helped to propagate Nigeria’s culture across the world, and even in far flung countries where you wouldn’t expect, they have seen Nollywood movies there. That should tell you that Nollywood is too important not to be taken serious. The industry really needs proper structures. It is not about running to the government and begging for money. Some people would just collect the money and share it among themselves; and that’s part of the reason the industry is still where it is. We have to step up our game as there are many things that can be gained from Nollywood. Entertainment is big business and it can even generate more money for the country than oil if it is well handled.”


On his most awkward moment with a fan, he said,

“I have had a lot of awkward moments with fans. Because of the comic roles I act in movies, some people expect me to be in that jovial mood all the time. And when some people see me physically, they would be hitting me as a style of greeting. Some could just meet me somewhere and ask me to start performing for them there. On some occasions, this gets to me but I remember that they are my fans and they are just showing me love, so I take it in my stride.”

Nigerian Couple Narrate How They Lost Two Of Their Children Within A Week Due To Poverty

Nigerian Couple Narrate How They Lost Two Of Their Children Within A Week Due To Poverty

A Lagos based couple, Hannah and Charles Nwankwo, have narrated how they lost two of their sons due to extreme poverty. The couple who reside in the Okota area of the state, say their sons died because they could not afford to give them the best of medical care when they fell ill. Speaking to The Nation, Mrs Nwankwo said

"When I gave birth to my first child Chukwuebuka Christopher, he had a condition which caused him to convulse regularly. We were managing it traditionally with palm kernel oil and some other things; but one day in March 2017, Chukwuebuka again began to convulse. On this occasion, we had unfortunately run out of the medicines, due to lack of money. To make matters worse, my husband was also not around to do the running around for cash. I was also eight months pregnant and Chukwuebuka was going to be three. I became afraid, panicky and started looking for people to help me. With neighbour’s help, we rushed him to Isolo General Hospital, where he was given injection and he immediately went into coma, which he never came out of. We really never took him to a hospital anytime he convulsed because the first time it happened and we took him to a hospital, we were told his condition wasn’t medical and that we should lean more towards traditional treatment. Since then, we managed to put it in check until this fateful day. It was after he went into a coma that we were told we should never have brought him to the hospital, as someone who is convulsing should not be injected. While in coma, they carried out series of tests on him and concluded that his life was in the hands of God and we should just be hopeful. But eventually, we lost him.

In the meantime, my second son also took ill. I still can’t understand what happened to Ebubechukwu; I can’t really explain it. He was one year, going to two and not sick. You know as children, he and his brother were always together; they played together, did everything together and were indeed very close. So, when he saw his brother lying in the hospital bed lifeless, he pulled and called his name in desperation. When he didn’t respond, he started crying and we consoled him. Thereafter he just started behaving funny and strange and eventually died.”

Mrs Nwankwo ays life has been difficult for them as her husband of three years who works with the Lagos State Waste Management Authority, LAWMA, has been finding it difficult to fend for his family because his N12,000 a month salary is never regular. She says her husband is currently being owed four months salary. 

 “We have been managing by God’s Grace. My baby is not eating well. We go hungry for days; sometimes because we don’t have money to buy food and the baby doesn’t get enough breast milk. She is five months old and the last time we checked, she weighed just 4kg, which is the usual weight for new born babies.”

Mrs Nwankwo who is a teacher by training, says she would love to teach again as it is her passion. According to her, she has taught in two good schools but lost the jobs.

Asked how they meet their rent obligation, she said: “We don’t pay for this place because of the water (flood) and because the building is abandoned. The caretaker just allowed us to move in to manage. The place gets badly flooded when it rains and our things get soaked. The water even gets to our ankle inside the house.”

Narrating his ordeal, her husband, Charles said life has been a living hell for him

“I work with Lagos State Waste Management Agency, LAWMA and I am being paid N12, 000, but for four months now, I have not got a kobo as salary. Because of this, life has been hell for me and my family. What I do now is take up menial jobs during my free time, since my work hour with LAWMA is between 7am and 1pm. It was partly because of this lack of payment that I lost my children to the cold hands of death. When we had Chukwuebuka, they said he had cerebral palsy and we were referred to the Physiotherapy Department of Isolo General Hospital. We kept to the appointments until he stopped responding and we had to stop taking him there.  Initially he could not stand on his own, but when we stopped he started improving. Unfortunately, there was a day I was not at home and my phone was switched off due to low battery (we have never had power in this house since we moved in because we cannot afford it); my son had crisis and I could not be reached. My wife always knows where to find me, so she rushed over to tell me that my son was convulsing and had been admitted in the hospital. When I got there, I saw my son unconscious; he had been given injection. From that day, Chukwuebuka never opened his eyes. He spent a month on oxygen before he finally gave up. The strange thing about their deaths is that my second son who was not sick at all died before the first. My wife put to bed on the 7th of February 2017, so I stayed with the boys while she was upstairs in the maternal ward with the baby. While I was still wondering what befell my second son, the doctor told me I should never have been bringing him to the hospital, where sick children were on admission, but I had nobody to entrust him with. He said that was what affected him. My second son died on February 18th 2017, while my first child breathed his last on February 25th 2017. Before their death, whenever we went to the hospital and they needed anything, my wife would stay with them while I went to get whatever they needed, and then I’d go home with my second son to sleep. But one night, my son couldn’t sleep; he was just behaving strangely. When we got to the hospital the next day, he continued the strange behaviour; he would raise his hands and roll over and hit his head on the baby’s cot. The nurses and matron were asking him if he was angry that his mother put to bed but he kept on behaving in the same manner. Nobody knew what was wrong. Later the doctor told me that my son was not responding to pain. But a bigger shock awaited me, as he soon told me that he had gone into coma. I went to him, touched him, pushed him, calling his name, but no response.  He was still breathing but was now on oxygen like his brother. The doctor thereafter told us to pray to God, but within 15 minutes, he died.”

Asked how he managed to buy drugs and even pay for oxygen, Mr Nwankwo said: “People and patients in the hospital were helping us with money.”

Like his wife, Charles Nwankwo also started out with great hope and potential. He was a student of Banking and Finance at the Lagos State Polytechnic, until lack of funds forced him out. He recalled that his first love was Law, which he wanted to study at the University of Lagos. “If I have another opportunity, I will go back to school because I believe that half education is very dangerous.”

Photos: Residents In Tears As Lagos State Demolishes Illegal Shanties In Obalende

Yesterday, Lagos State Government began the demolition of illegal structures and shanties in Obalende after it served another 48 hours ‘Abatement Notice’, Tuesday, 25th to Thursday, 27th of July, 2017, to all owners of illegal structures and shanties including containerised shops around Obalende to remove them immediately or face demolition and prosecution.

 

Chairman of the Lagos State Task Force Superintendent of Police, Olayinka Egbeyemi said the illegal structures and shanties including containerised shops were directly constructed right on water channels thereby, blocking free flow of water through drainage and canals around Obalende with resultant floods whenever it rains.    

 

He had disclosed that the initial 6-month notice from the government expired recently but the law permitted a 48 hours ‘Abatement Notice’ to be served before any demolition.  

 

Residents were however seen in uncontrollable tears as the task force team sormed the area this morning.
