Karen Murray to Exit Nautica as Rendle Settles in as VF CEO

Steven Rendle, the new chief executive officer of VF Corp., is starting to make his presence felt and Nautica president Karen Murray is among the first to exit the company under the new regime.
Rendle last month took the reins at the Greensboro, N.C.-based company, succeeding Eric Wiseman. He had been president and chief operating officer.
Late Thursday, shortly after Nautica had shown its fall collection at New York Fashion Week: Men’s, VF said Brendan Sullivan had been named president of sportswear and Murray would become a senior brand adviser to the organization.
Murray, a highly respected industry veteran who has been with VF for just under a decade, did not give a timetable on when she would depart, but will remain through a transition period.
Sullivan was vice president of direct-to-consumer for VF and was based in the company’s headquarters in North Carolina. He will oversee Kipling in addition to Nautica and will report to Curt Holtz, president of Imagewear, Jeans and Sportswear Brands for VF.
Nina Flood, president of Kipling North America, which Murray also oversaw, will also report to Sullivan.
“I love this brand, I love this team,” Murray said, “but Steve is the new ceo and he wants his own team.”
Murray admitted that a

Tracy Morgan Settles With Wal-Mart Over Fatal Crash That Killed Actor’s Friend And Injured Three Others

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Actor-comedian Tracy Morgan has settled his lawsuit against Wal-Mart over a New Jersey highway crash that killed one man and left Morgan and two friends seriously injured.

A filing in federal court in Newark on Wednesday refers to a confidential settlement reached by the two sides.

Morgan’s lawyer hasn’t responded to a message seeking comment.

Bentonville, Arkansas-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc. calls it an “amicable settlement.” Details haven’t been disclosed.

A Wal-Mart truck slammed into the back of a limo van carrying Morgan and the others back from a show in Delaware last June. Comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair was killed. Morgan suffered head trauma, a broken leg and broken ribs.

Wal-Mart reached a settlement with McNair’s two children in January.

The truck driver, a man from Jonesboro, Georgia, faces several criminal charges, including death by auto, in state court. He has pleaded not guilty. He wasn’t a defendant in Morgan’s federal lawsuit.

Apple Settles E-book Antitrust Case With States, Consumers

June 17 (Reuters) – Apple Inc reached an out-of-court settlement with U.S. states and other complainants in an e-book price-fixing class action lawsuit on Monday, effectively avoiding a trial in which the iPad maker faced more than $ 800 million in claims.

U.S. District Judge in Manhattan Denise Cote ordered the parties to submit a filing to seek approval of their settlement within 30 days.

The terms of the settlement, which still needs court approval, have not been revealed.

The U.S. Department of Justice sued Apple and five publishers in April 2012, accusing them of working together illegally to increase e-book prices.

Since then, 33 states and U.S. territories have separately sued Apple on behalf of their consumers, while individual consumers in other states and territories filed a class action lawsuit.

The complainants are seeking up to $ 840 million in damages for e-book customers. The exact amount of damages was to be litigated at a trial scheduled for July 14.

The publishers – Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins Publishers, Penguin Group (USA) Inc, Macmillan and Simon & Schuster Inc, previously agreed to pay more than $ 166 million to settle related antitrust charges.

Last July, a federal court found Apple liable for colluding with the publishers after a separate non-jury trial in a case brought by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Judge Cote found that Apple took part in a price-fixing conspiracy to fight online retailer Inc’s dominance in the e-book market.

Apple is appealing that decision and Monday’s settlement is contingent on the outcome of that appeal.

“As set forth in the memorandum of understanding, any payment to be made by Apple under the settlement agreement will be contingent on the outcome of that appeal,” Steve Berman of Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, the plaintiffs’ lead lawyer, wrote in a letter to the judge.

Berman declined to comment on the settlement until the final papers are filed. Kristin Huguet, a spokeswoman for Apple, also declined to comment on the settlement.

The cases are in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, case no: 11-md-2293 and 12-cv-03394. (Reporting by Supriya Kurane in Bangalore; Editing by Gopakumar Warrier)
