As JLM Couture and Hayley Paige Gutman Litigate Instagram Account Comments Vanish

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 6 – In the case by JLM Couture against its former designer Hayley Paige Gutman, a dispute has arisen not only over the Instagram accounts but also comments posted on it, since taken down. 

 On January 6, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered and live tweeted it, here:

Ms. Gutman's lawyer wants access to now taken down Instagram accounts supporting her. JLM's says she manipulated the public's view.

Judge Cave asks, Why doesn't Ms. Gutman just ask her followers to send her their comments that have now been taken down? [Seems JLM posted on "her" account and then took down the comments. The question here is, whose account was this? JLM wants protective order]

 JLM's lawyer Sarah Matz said she doesn't know if her client can now see the comments it took down. "The comments were's a very nice dress, actually. The morning after the TRO Ms Gutman posted that my client was bullying her. Then the negative backlash"

JLM's Matz: "I agree that the IG data will be relevant, later in the case, not for the P.I. [preliminary injunction.] But Ms. Gutman told people it's her account, of course they repeated it. She called my client a disgusting company

JPM's Matz: Miss Haley Paige is my client's trademark. But Ms. Gutman was using it to sell avocado oil. And salad dressing.

As to another account, Matz says carefully, It's not my understanding that JLM has any control over that account. Ms. Gutman's lawyer: What about JPM's P.R. firm?


Then: Matz: My client is a corporation. Another session was set up.

The case is JLM Couture, Inc. v. Gutman, 20-cv-10575 (Swain / Cave)
