A judge has dismissed a lawsuit against Frank Gehry by a company that claimed it was owed money for a jewelry line designed by the famed architect.
Circa Publishing Enterprises LLC sued Gehry in May 2007, claiming it had exclusive rights to the line the architect designed for Tiffany & Co.
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge dismissed the lawsuit Monday after several days of testimony during a trial. The ruling came shortly before attorneys were to make their closing arguments to jurors.
Gehry's attorney, Patty Glaser, says Gehry was "totally vindicated" by the judge's ruling.
An attorney for Circa Publishing Enterprises did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
Gehry's work includes the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
