It looks like beauty company Hard Candy won’t be backing down anytime soon in its lawsuit against Madonna for copyright infringement and unfair competition.
Instead, the company his filed court documents that claim the “Material Girl” won’t appear for a deposition unless she is ordered to by the court, RadarOnline.com can reveal exclusively.
Filed on July 15, the documents state that Florida-based Hard Candy would like to question Madonna about her role in any business decisions, but it claims that “[Madonna] will not be produced without court order.”
As Radar previously reported, Hard Candy is suing the “Vogue” singer because it claims she and Guy Oseary stole the company’s name to sell their own fitness apparel and DVDs in 2011.
But Madonna requested a judge dismiss the case because she and her lawyers claim the Florida courts have no jurisdiction over her Delaware-based business. She also wants the case dropped because she also claimed she had no involvement in any business decisions.
A hearing has been set for July 22 where a judge will make a decision regarding Madonna’s potential deposition.
