Abercrombie & Fitch

The Situation Can't Sue Us ...

We're ALLOWED to Mock Him

Abercrombie & Fitch is trying to end their ongoing feud with The Situation once and for all -- asking a judge to dimiss the "Jersey Shore" star's lawsuit against the clothing company ... on grounds dude can't take a joke.

The war between Sitch and A&F began back in August -- when A&F publicly offered to pay The Situation NOT to wear its clothing. A month later, Sitch sued the company, claiming it ripped off his "GTL" and "Situation" trademarks on a line of guido-mocking t-shirts (below).

But now, A&F is trying to put an end to the back-and-forth -- claiming Sitch had no right to sue them in the first place ... because he doesn't technically own the trademarks in question ... he only applied for them.

What's more -- A&F claims Situation's application for "Gym Tan Laundry" has actually been suspended ... because MTV already owns "Gym Tanning Laundry," and the US Patent & Trademark Office thinks they're too similar.

But trademarks aside -- A&F insists its shirts are still protected under a law that allows parody as part of free speech ... in other words, the shirts were obviously a harmless joke ... albeit at the Situation's expense.

Bottom line, A&F is hoping to avoid further litigation by citing an often incontrovertible fact ... The Situation is full of crap. So far, no word back from Sitch's camp.

Can't stand either Fitch or Sitch. Sitch, the douchbag that started this whole process neens to slapped down and put in his place. This POS thinks the world revolves around him. He needs to get a real life.

I said from the start that he can't sue over a parody. I guess he realizes that his 15 are almost up, and he needs to squirrel away as much money as he can to last the rest of his life.
