NEW YORK (Legal Newsline) — A New Jersey woman is suing a watch company, alleging false advertising over where the watches were made. 

Christine Huber filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of others similarly situated, Aug. 15 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Shinola/Detroit LLC and Bedrock Manufacturing Company LLC, alleging negligent misrepresentation. 

According to the complaint, Huber was misled by the defendants' false advertising into purchasing a $600 Shinola watch she thought was made in Detroit. The plaintiff alleges several of the components of the watch actually came from Asia and Europe.

Huber seeks trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages, interest, restitution, injunctive relief, all legal fees and all other relief the court deems just. She is represented by attorney Robert L. Kraselnik of Law Offices of Robert L. Kraselnik, PLLC in Elmhurst, New York.
