American Apparel has had its share of lawsuits. More recently with Woody Allen after American Apparel posted billboards of Allen without his permission. Now, American Apparel is on the offense against an opposing attorney in an employment litigation.

Keith Fink has a reputation as an aggressive employment attorney, typically suing celebrities and others in the entertainment industry. One of Fink’s notable cases is against blogger queen Perez Hilton over the PerezRevenge domain name trademark litigation. Fink represents a former employee of America Apparel that is suing the company’s CEO Dov Charney for sexual harassment.

As a preemptive attack, American Apparel has taken out several ads in UCLA’s Daily Bruin newspaper attacking Fink (who is a professor at UCLA) for his allege misconduct. UCLA however, stopped placing the ads, so America Apparel has moved on to the L.A. Business Journal. The May 11th issue of the paper has an America Apparel ad blasting Fink


  1. Fink looses most every case he when he cannot shake down innocent people. Often Finks client goes bankrupt by the end of the case. Fink charges 50% contingency fee with all expenses out of the clients side plus clients side pays $300 per month to be in his computers. Anyone who thinks Fink can possibly win in court is dreaming. He is not that smart and has an ego bigger than the rest of the country. This little, little man (using Man generously) is so insecure that he cannot go a case without more sanctions than any jury has ever awarded.

    Why does California Bar association allow him to play lawyer?

  2. I think the mistake you're making is calling them "allegations." Maybe I don't get the blogging thing as well as anyone else, but did you bother to look to see if he had, in fact, been sued that many times?

    I did and he has. In other words, he isn't "aggressive" he is a criminal.
