Celebrity hairdresser Vidal Sassoon has filed a lawsuit against Procter & Gamble for breach of contract and fraud of the product line that bears his name.
USA Today reported that Sassoon has alleged that P&G used the Sassoon name to enter the upscale hair care business before abandoning it - except in Asia - to avoid royalties.
P&G denied the allegation.

A US court has ruled that Coca-Cola’s main Latin American bottler can stand trial for allegedly hiring right-wing paramilitaries to kill and intimidate union leaders in Colombia.
Coca-Cola and its bottlers have rejected the allegations made by the suit.
