On November 26th, 2008, defendants Amy and Scott Weber of Touch of Pink Cosmetics filed a Summary Judgment in their continuing proceedings of the lawsuit broungt against them by Mary Kay Inc.
A Summary Judgment is a motion made by one of the parties of a lawsuit before the case goes to trial. In it, the party filing the Summary Judgment puts forth the evidence in their favor and argues that this evidence is so clear that a jury faced with the case could only reach a decision in favor of the party filing the Summary Judgment.
In other words, Touch of Pink is saying that there isn’t a case against them, and the charges Mary Kay Inc. has alleged aren’t valid.
It’s very interesting reading, I think, and makes some interesting points. Now the judge will have to review the document and see whether he agrees. If he does, he will enter a judgment in Touch of Pink’s favor. Case closed.
The information outlined and points made in this summary judgment are critical to other similar Mary Kay inventory liquidators. If Mary Kay’s assertions are dismissed by the judge, Mary Kay Inc. will have to go back to the drawing board. And resellers doing business in a similar fashion as Touch of Pink could potentially be assured that they couldn’t be sued for the types of allegations contained in this lawsuit.
