The attorney’s for Paris Hilton have responded to the $35 million lawsuit against the heiress. The attorney’s said on Thursday that the lawsuit on Hilton lacked merit and they vowed a vigorous defense, and a possible countersuit.
The famous socialite was sued on Wednesday in Los Angeles by a hair extension manufacturing company, Hairtech International Inc., for breaching her contract of wearing their product. They said the 29-year-old wore fake locks of a competitor in 2008. The company is seeking $35 million in damages. This amount is 10 times what she was paid under the contract.
Spokeswoman for Hilton said in a statement on Thursday that Hilton’s attorneys have deemed the lawsuit saying it was without merits.
Hairtech has also claimed that Hilton missed a launch party in 2007 because she was in jail. The company said in the filing that it lost $6.6 million on the launch party alone.
Hilton served 23 days in 2007 after she was caught driving twice on a suspended license when she was on probation.
