SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) - A California man is suing a coffee products company, alleging it misrepresents certain of its flavored coffees.
Taylor Ely of Windsor, California, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit May 18 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against F. Gavinia & Sons Inc., alleging breach of express and implied warranties, violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, and violations of California's Consumer Legal Remedies Act, the state's Unfair Competition Law and its False Advertising Law.

They are represented by attorneys Ronald A. Marron and Skye Resendes of the Law Offices of Ronald A. Marron APLC in San Diego, and David Elliot of the Law Office of David Elliot in San Diego.
