Kim Kardashian's lawsuit against Old Navy for using her likeness in a commercial is not going away anytime soon.

Of course, it's also not coming to pass anytime soon.

A trial date of April 23, 2013 (yes, 2013), has been set by Federal Judge Dale S. Fischer for the battle between Kardashian and Old Navy's parent company, the Gap.

The date was set after yesterday's hearing, during which Fisher also went over some of the finer points of the proceedings, including outlining trial deadlines for motions, discovery and expert witnesses.

The suit was filed by Kim against the retailer last July after using a Kim look-alike in their ad campaign. She claimed that they were unauthorized in their use of her likeness, which is undeniably highly sought out "to endorse commercial products and services."

For their part, the Gap denied all allegations in a response filed last September, further claiming that their campaign was protected under the First Amendment.

The trial is expected to last four to six days.
