Ivanka Trump, daughter of U.S. President Donald Trump, listens while meeting with women small business owners with Trump, not pictured, in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Monday, March 27, 2017. Investors on Monday further unwound trades initiated in November resting on the idea that the election of Trump and a Republican Congress meant smooth passage of an agenda that featured business-friendly tax cuts and regulatory changes.

Shoemaker Aquazzura Italia SRL agreed to dismiss its lawsuit accusing Ivanka Trump of stealing the design of its "Wild Thing" high-heeled sandal.

The case was withdrawn by agreement between Aquazurra, Trump and other parties, including Marc Fisher Holdings LLC, which partnered with Trump to launch her shoe brand in 2011, court documents filed Friday show. No settlement terms were disclosed.

The lawsuit, filed in 2016, said Trump copied the design of the $785 " Wild Thing " shoe for her own discount "Hettie" model, which sold for $130. The filing said all the parties in the case would bear their own costs and attorney’s fees. Lawyers for Acquazurra and Trump didn’t immediately respond to calls for comment.
