Seyfarth Shaw is advising Playboy in a trademark lawsuit against a Chicago-area attorney who once posed nude for the magazine and wrote an advice column before her contract with Playboy was terminated amid allegations of sexual harassment, according to court records and this story in the Chicago Tribune.
Jason Stiehl, a senior associate at Seyfarth identified on the complaint as the lead lawyer in the case, declined to comment and referred inquiries to a Playboy spokeswoman. The spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment. (Playboy Enterprises, like Seyfarth, is headquartered in Chicago. The firm has a long history of doing IP work for Playboy, and a current Playboy assistant general counsel is a Seyfarth alum.)
