Fashion Police Are Coming After Jesse James Clothing Line


Jesse James Named in Fashion Lawsuit

Jesse James, known for his insane motorcycle designs at West Coast Choppers and his regular stints on cable television, may have a posse of lawyers coming after him.

Turns out James was co-creating a clothing line brand with a partner to be dubbed America’s Brand and sold through Wal-Mart.  At the last minute the partner was cut out, the clothing line renamed after James, and a key employee was stolen.

Now defendant Lori Edwards is suing for $200,000 for expenses and time spent on the project.

Jesse James, his representatives and business partnership attorneys have not made any statements or returned calls made by inquiring journalists.
