Marlon Brando's estate sues over the sale of home theater chair called 'The Brando'

Representatives of Marlon Brando's estate are suing two furniture companies and a retailer over the sale of a home theater chair called "The Brando."

The lawsuit, filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, claims misappropriation of the name of a deceased celebrity. The actor died in July 2004 and permission was not obtained to use his name, the estate claims.

The estate's representatives are asking for unspecified damages and a court order to halt the sale of any more goods using the Brando name.

The chairs are being sold by Southern California-based City Leather Inc., Winnipeg, Manitoba-based Palliser Furniture Ltd. and North Carolina-based Palliser Furniture Corp, reports AP.

Jason Brainard, vice president of City Leather, said officials at his stores were told to stop using the Brando name when selling the chair. No decision has been made yet on what to rename the chair, he said.

The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
