LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A California woman is suing an
shoe retailer claiming it used deceptive and misleading advertising to market
the exclusive merchandise it sells online and in its stores.
Amy Evans, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Central
District of California on May 31 against DSW Inc., alleging violation of unfair
competition laws and unjust enrichment.
According to the complaint, DSW intentionally misrepresents
prices for products manufactured and sold exclusively for it, claiming they
are steeply discounted. However, the suit claims the discounts are misleading
because the products are only sold at DSW and never for the alleged suggested
Evans seeks a jury trial, restitution for damages and
disgorgement of unjust enrichment. She is represented by four attorneys from
Tycko & Zavareei: Kristen Law Sagafi and Martin D. Quinones in Oakland, and
Hassan A. Zavareei and Jeffrey D. Kaliel in Washington, D.C.
