LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) - Two women are suing a pillow and bedding products company, alleging it misrepresents itself to consumers.
Neda Kadkhoda of California and Marcia Williams of Florida, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit March 31 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against My Pillow Inc., alleging breach of express warranty, fraud in inducement, violation of the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, and violations of California business and civil codes.
The suit alleges in order to sell its products, My Pillow deceptively and fraudulently used the logos of prominent news reporting organizations on My Pillow's website.
The lawsuit states My Pillow falsely and deceptively represented that its inventor and CEO, Michael J. Lindell, is a "sleep expert."
Kadkhoda, Williams, and others in the class seek a jury trial, compensatory and punitive damages, interest, restitution, declaratory and injunctive relief, attorney fees and costs of the suit. They are represented by attorneys Barbara A. Rohr, Benjamin Heikali, and Timothy J. Peter of Faruqi & Faruqi in Los Angeles, and Jenkintown, Pennsylvania.
