Another day, another Louboutin lawsuit. The case he brought against Zara France in 2008 for selling a knock-off of his YoYo heels has finally been resolved, with a French court ruling in favor of Zara and requiring Louboutin to fork over about £2,000 in compensation, according to Grazia. Of course, that's less than the price of some Louboutin originals, so it's not likely to make much of a dent in the designer's pocketbook, but this does not bode well for Louboutin's chances in the battle of the red sole he's currently waging against YSL.
