NEWARK, N.J. (Legal Newsline) - A New Jersey woman is suing a hat retailer, alleging its terms and conditions are illegal.
Bronwyn Nahas of Paramus, New Jersey, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit April 22 in
U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey
against Hatworld Inc., alleging violations of New Jersey's Truth-in-Consumer Contract, Warranty and Notice Act.
The suit alleges the terms and conditions on the defendant's websites, www.lids.com and www.hatworld.com, illegally attempt to limit New Jersey consumers' legal rights and limit the sellers' liability for intentional and wanton acts. The lawsuit states the defendant's terms and conditions also try to impose Indiana law on New Jersey consumers' claims.
Nahas and others in the class seek a jury trial, injunction, damages of at least $100 per violation for each class member, interests, attorney fees and costs. They are represented by attorneys Stephen T. Sullivan Jr. and John E. Keefe Jr. of Keefe Bartels in Red Bank, New Jersey, and Jeffrey M. Ostrow, Avi R. Kaufman and Scott A. Edelsberg of Kopelowitz Ostrow Ferguson Weiselberg Gilbert in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
