UPDATE: According to court documents, the judge has now reversed the interim court order that dismissed the case against Elite Model Management.
The judge points to oral testimony that was given by Women's Models Management, and amended the order to continue the court proceedings.
Women's Models Management tells The Blast, "As the court’s order makes clear, our case against Elite, its owner and executives was not dismissed. The court’s order also makes clear that we won an injunction that prohibits our model managers from soliciting our models until 2020 and in some cases 2021. We intend to vigorously prosecute our claims against Elite and the other members of the conspiracy that have wrongfully targeted our client."
The battle between two modeling agencies is over after allegations of poaching top talent, like supermodel Behati Prinsloo, was unfounded.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, a N.Y. court dismissed the case against Elite Model Managements and their executives, Eddie Trump and Dejean Markovic.
The interim order was signed by the judge on August 19.
The case was initially filed by Women’s Models Management, who claimed that the bigger Elite management firm was poaching top talent, including Prinsloo.
The judge in the case ruled that Elite Model Management owed "no duty" to the plaintiff, and that the argument by Women's Model Management didn't fit the bill for an injunction.
