John Galliano might be staging a comeback, but the lawsuit between the designer and his former employer, Dior, has only just begun. After wading through plenty of legalise, it's clear that Galliano won the first hearing, which established that the case would be heard in Labor Relations Court, rather than France's commercial court (unless Dior appeals). Looks like they'll be in it for the long haul. Stay tuned for several years to come. [WWD]
