LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) — A Los Angeles woman is suing Ace Hardware, alleging the defendant deceived consumers regarding its 60-day return policy.
Kimberly Hummer filed a class action complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Oct. 24 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against
Ace Hardware Corporation and Does 1-20,
alleging unfair competition.
According to the complaint, earlier this year Hummer sustained monetary damages from being unable to return an item she purchased from an Ace store in Las Vegas despite being promised the 60-day return policy was in effect as long as she had the receipt.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants advertise the "No Hassle 60-Day Return with Receipt" policy to customers in order to mislead them into purchasing Ace products.
Hummer seeks trial by jury, injunctive, equitable and declaratory relief, damages, restitution and disgorgement, treble damages, court costs and all relief the court grants. She is represented by attorneys Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman in Woodland Hills, California.
