FINALLY DONE: A Manhattan federal district court entered a final order Thursday confirming that Christian Louboutin has no further claims against Yves Saint Laurent over red monochrome shoes and dismissing the lawsuit.

After 18 months of wrangling, a New York federal appeals court in September backed the validity of Louboutin’s red-sole trademark but said the French shoemaker would only be able to protect its mark when it comes to red-soled shoes with contrasting uppers. That decision gave YSL the right to continue selling its monochrome red pump. Louboutin first sued YSL in April 2011. As the case moved back to a New York federal district court for further evaluation of YSL’s counterclaims, YSL a month later dropped its claims against Louboutin. Thursday’s court order merely confirms closure of the litigation between the parties.
