WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Luxury goods manufacturer Coach has sued a Wichita business, its owner and an employee for allegedly selling phony goods bearing its brand name.

The lawsuit filed Friday against The Fabulous Store is the latest legal headache for store owner Glenda Morgan.

It comes on the heels of a three-count indictment filed last month against the store and Morgan charging they sold counterfeit goods imported from China. The criminal charges accuse her of selling handbags, wallets, sunglasses and jewelry from numerous manufacturers.

Morgan declined comment Monday.

Coach seeks to block the store from selling its fraudulent goods and to destroy any remaining inventory. It also seeks damages of more than $2 million for each counterfeited trademark.

The civil lawsuit alleges copyright and trademark infringement, unfair competition, unjust enrichment and trademark dilution.
