Evidently, Harooni licensed his idea to a company called Snaplight, which is now struggling to keep its head above water.

This idea was allegedly licenced with his company Snaplight. So, not surprisingly, Snaplight and Harooni are claiming that LuMee stole their invention and made it impossible for them to make any money after they teamed up with an influencer like Kim.
Late past year, LuMee filed a patent lawsuit against Snaplight for infringement which is still yet to go through the courts. West's endorsement of LuMee branded selfie cases", court papers read. "Ms. "Kim has done absolutely nothing wrong", said Kardashian's rep speaking to Radar.
Harooni alleges that the LuMee case rips off his original design-the only difference between the two being that his own case features a built-in charger-and because of Kardashian's endorsement, his case's sales have plummeted.
Of Kim Kardashian's many innovations, the LuMee phone case stands apart. "Between its patents, copyrights and trademarks, LuMee has developed substantial intellectual property rights surrounding its product line", LuMee said.
Snaplight wants Kardashian to stop promoting the phone case and, of course, the aforementioned $100 million. The star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and wife of Kanye West has a net worth of $53 million, according to The Sun. Kardashian herself hasn't commented on the lawsuit.
