Chachi Gonzales (IaMmE) sued over rights to market Chachimomma pants

According to M Live, Chachi Gonzalez (member of ABDC's IaMmE) is being sued by Infusion Marketing over an exclusive license to market Chachimomma pants.  According to the suit, Chachi's family broke their agreement and started selling competing lines while locking the marketing company out of the Chachimomma website. Chachi argues that she never signed the contract, but that her signature was forged by her mother, she received no money and is not under the jurisdiction of the Michigan courts. 

The article states that Kent County Circuit Court Judge Christopher Yates wrote in his opinion order that "Infusion presented enough evidence to allow the case to move forward, but cautioned that the company would be "hard pressed" to advance any legal claims if it is determined that Gonzales did not, in fact, sign the licensing agreement with Infusion."
