New York consumer accuses coffee company of fraud

By Louie Torres | Aug 17, 2016

NEW YORK — A New York consumer is suing a coffee company, alleging false claims regarding the total net weight of its products.

Adam Sorgenti of New Windsor, New York, filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Aug. 9 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Eight O'Clock Coffee Company, alleging fraud and misrepresentation. 

According to the complaint, Sorgenti sustained financial damages after being misled into purchasing a falsely labeled product. The plaintiff alleges Eight O'Clock Coffee falsely labeled its product to contain 12 ounces of coffee but, in reality, consumers are only getting 11 to 11.5 ounces per pack.

Sorgenti seeks a trial by jury, damages, interest, enjoining the defendant, court costs and all further relief the court grants. He is represented by attorneys Jeffrey I. Carton and Robert J. Berg of Denlea & Carton LLP in White Plains, New York.
