Navajo Nation Reaches Settlement With Urban Outfitters

Navajo Nation Reaches Settlement With Urban Outfitters

A Navajo Nation lawsuit that stemmed from clothing company Urban Outfitters use the Navajo name and Navajo inspired designs has been settled.
The settlement, which resolves the lawsuit filed in 2012, was announced on Thursday. The terms of the settlement are confidential but the parties did enter into a supply and license agreement and plan to collaborate on authentic American Indian jewelry in the future.
The tribe filed the lawsuit in February of 2012 in U.S. District Court of New Mexico after Urban Outfitters released clothing, jewelry, handbags, flasks, and underwear which were labeled “Navajo” or had Navajo inspired designs.
The parties agreed to dismiss the case with prejudice, meaning it is a final and binding decision and prevents further pursuit of the same matter in court. Each party agreed to pay for their own expenses and attorney fees incurred by the legal action.
