LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A Baltimore consumer alleges a vintage watch she purchased was misrepresented.
Brunilda Stephens filed a complaint on behalf of herself and all others similarly situated on Aug. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Nordstrom Inc. and HauteLook Inc. alleging common law fraud and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she purchased a vintage Rolex watch from the defendants in 2015 on the representations that it was an authentic watch, was in excellent condition, contained all Rolex parts and was being shipped by the brand and had been appraised.
The plaintiff holds Nordstrom Inc. and HauteLook Inc. responsible because the watches are allegedly shipped from jewelers, contain non-Rolex parts and are worth substantially less than the price paid.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks restitution and disgorgement, actual damages, exemplary and punitive damages, all legal fees, interest and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Roland C. Colton of Colton Law Group in Laguna Niguel, California and Alexander Escandari of L.A. Trial Lawyers Inc. in Beverly Hills, California.
