NEW YORK (Legal Newsline) — A consumer has filed a class-action lawsuit against J. Crew Group Inc.; J. Crew Operating Corp.; J. Crew Inc.; J. Crew International Inc.; Chinos Holdings Inc.; Chinos Intermediate Holdings A Inc.; and Chinos Intermediate Holdings B Inc., alleging that the clothing manufacturers misrepresented the price of their products.
Caron Coladonato filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on June 7 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against the defendants alleging that they made false claims regarding discounts on their products.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered from being misled into purchasing a falsely advertised product. The plaintiff holds J. Crew and Chinos responsible because the defendants allegedly advertised their products in J. Crew Factory outlet stores and on the J. Crew Factory website as being 50 percent off despite the fact that they were actually being offered at a 49 percent discount.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks disgorgement, restitution, economic and compensatory damages, punitive and exemplary damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by Ross H. Schmierer of DeNittis Osefchen Prince P.C. in Marlton, New Jersey.
