U.s. Billionaire Targets Canadian Designer In Bahamas Row – Yahoo News

13 Oct

Nooka is just the perfect brand to bridge that gap of being a fashion tech-company. Waldman eased into timepiece design after years as a website designer, having begun his career in the early 1990s, he says. Pivoting into an art director role, he toiled with New York Zoom in 1997. He became interested in futuristic design, fashion and tech. The designs that would become Nooka were meant to meld those features. He pitched his ideas and was rejected time and again before scoring a licensing deal with Seiko. There was a slow transition over a period of about three or four years where I went from being this design consultant to actually being this designer-entrepreneur with an actual physical product. Waldman, who owns 80% of his company, claims his understanding of the art of fusing tech and fashion is an added selling point for Nooka. He points to products like Google Glass and Microsofts tablet and Windows Phone as examples of feature-crazy gadgets that fail the brand and dont excite consumer sentiment.

Trying To Rebuild A Company With Crowdfunding: Nooka – Forbes

The unusual request by Louis Bacon, founder of Moore Capital Management LP, expands the conflict that the 71-year-old Nygard already faces in the Bahamas. Environmental groups and many residents there have contended that his property development in the exclusive gated Lyford Cay community on the west side of New Providence Island may damage the surrounding ecosystem and beaches. Bacon outlined his request in filings on Wednesday with the U.S. District Court in Manhattan. Richard Good, a lawyer for Nygard, called the request part of Bacon’s “malicious campaign” to illegally obtain the Bahamian property and “wrongfully continue to damage Mr. Nygard’s businesses and reputation.” Nygard will hire a New York lawyer “with a view” to filing a countersuit in the now 10-year battle, Good added. Nygard, a son of Finnish immigrants, is chairman of Nygard International, which is based in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Louis Bacon Uses Chevron’s Tool To Fight Neighbor And Clothing Magnate Peter Nygard – Forbes

Feralio then stepped forward as a whistleblower, the lawyers say, but he needs protection against his former employer who Forbes once described as having been accused of abusive labor practices, tax evasion, sexual harassment and rape. A spokeswoman for in Toronto didnt immediately return a phone call seeking comment. By filing in New York, Bacon is using a little-known tool that allows litigants to ask U.S. courts to subpoena records here for use in lawsuits overseas. Feralio is in New York, Bacons lawyers argue, and ready to hand over the evidence if ordered to do so. It isnt subject to attorney-client privilege a complication in the Donziger case, since he was arguably an attorney speaking about the strategy he was pursuing on behalf of his clients and the video would be essential to pursuing the defamation and environmental cases, Bacons lawyers said.
