EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (Legal Newsline) — An Illinois woman is suing a cleaning products manufacturer, alleging unfair, false and misleading business practices.
Jessica Munton filed a class action complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated in the United States, Sept. 6 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois against
Method Products PBC and People Against Dirty PBC,
alleging violation of the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.
According to the complaint, Munton purchased defendants' cleaning products at Target, believing they were natural and naturally derived products. The suit says she has suffered financial damages for paying a premium price for products that are worth less because they are not all-natural.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants deceptively and unfairly represented that their products are all-natural and/or naturally derived, which deceives consumers into believing they contain only natural ingredients.
Munton seeks trial by jury, certification that this is a class action, appointing the plaintiff and her counsel as class representatives, compensation for damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney fees, court costs and all such relief the court deems just.
She is represented by attorneys Matthew H. Armstrong of Armstrong Law Firm LLC in St. Louis; David C. Nelson of Nelson & Nelson PC in Belleville; and by Stuart L. Cochran of Cochran Law PLLC in Dallas.
U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois Case number 3:16-cv-01011
