LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) - A major department store is being sued in federal court over allegations it mislead customers with its advertisements of original prices, regular prices and discount prices.
Steven Russell filed the lawsuit on June 11 in United States District Court in California against Kohl's Department Stores claiming the company advertised false original and regular prices to customers.
The lawsuit said Kohl's used direct marketing to advertise its deals to customers. However, the original and regular prices weren't the true prices, and the result was a false price discount on sale items offered to customers, the suit says.
Russell claims he visited a Kohl's Department Store on about 15 different occasions, and purchased products from the store in Palm Desert, Calif., where the store had the falsely advertised products.
The lawsuit is seeking class status for those who purchased products from Kohl's between June 11, 2011 and the present. The suit is also seeking more than $5 million in damages plus court costs.
Russell is represented by Douglas Caiafa, of Douglas Caiafa, a professional law corporation in Las Angeles, and Christopher J. Morosoff of the Law Office of Christopher J. Morosoff in Palm Desert, Calif.
