Ivanka Trump will have to take a little break from hissing into her senile father's ear to testify in a trademark dispute over the design of one of her company's shoes.

The luxury Italian shoe company charged at the time that a red hot, high-heeled "Hettie" sandal manufactured by Trump's company was a knockoff of their $785 "Wild Thing" model.

The judge also wrote that "Ms. Trump's public statements regarding active and comprehensive brand management lead to a reasonable inference that the shoe at issue would not have been released without her approval".

In its decision, the court ruled that the provision of evidence by Ivanka trump will be limited to two hours and will be held in Washington, DC. This time, they're seeking unspecified damages. The Italian company wants to Ivanka trump interviewed on the case.

Aquazzura requested to question Trump before a trial, but her legal team asked the judge to rule that she doesn't have to testify.

At the heart of the lawsuit is Aquazurra's "Wild Things" shoe.

The judge in the shoe saga suit did make a few accommodations to make sure the deposition fit in with the First Daughter's busy schedule.

Instead, Trump's lawyers suggested that Abigail Klem, IT Collection's president, answer the questions.

In such a situation, "a deposition is appropriate", the judge said.

In court documents filed last week, Trump affirmed that she is no longer her brand's president, the Associated Press reported.

"I had no involvement in the conception, design, production or sale of the 'Hettie Shoe, '" Trump said. Adding, "While that declaration does assert a lack of personal knowledge of the design at issue, plaintiff asserts otherwise".

The Florence, Italy-based Aquazzura says almost every detail of its shoe was copied.
