Guns Ν’ Roses files suit against K mart

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Guns Ν’ Roses has filed a $2 million lawsuit against K mart Corp. for alleged unauthorized use of the rock band’s picture and name in an advertisement for a toy drum set.

The band members “suffered damage to their reputation, loss of good will, mental anguish resulting from the use of the advertisement without their consent,” according to the Superior Court lawsuit filed Wednesday.

The lawsuit, filed by attorney Kevin F. Ruf, seeks $1 million in special damages and $1 million in general damages. It alleges commercial invasion of privacy, misappropriation of the band’s name, unfair competition and trademark infringement.

K mart’s corporate offices in Troy, Mich., were closed late Thursday and no one was available to comment on the lawsuit, said a security guard who answered the phone.
