Once replica Chanel handbags and wallets were detected for sale online at the former Alleghany Moon Variety Store, legal action ensued. After repeated requests that the owners and operators of the former online store, Alleghany Moon Variety Store, comply with regard to discontinuing their misuse of the Chanel owned marks, a favorable response was not received. Consequently, Chanel was forced to file a lawsuit. In order to protect the good name of Chanel and to protect future purchases by consumers from buying fake handbags and sunglasses which were mistakenly thought to be able to live up to the luxury and high quality standards Chanel is known for, the case was soon to be decided by the Court of law.
The case against the former owners of Alleghanymoonvarietystore.com was filed in the Southern District of New York on April 30, 2008. The operator of the replica Chanel online store was served with a complaint regarding the replica Chanel products being sold at the online stores. As the owners and operators served with the lawsuit had not answered the complaint on September 16, 2008, Chanel requested a default judgment to be entered in their favor. The court issued a final default judgment and permanent injunction in the case on January 6, 2009 which ordered the store permanently shut down and those responsible for the illicit activites to pay over $145,000. To give the injunction some additional and more meaningful force behind it the judge granted ownership of the domains involved handed over to Chanel.
