James C. Nguyen filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, July 5 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Southern Glazer's Wine and Spirits, LLC, and Southern Wine & Spirits of America Inc., alleging they issued false and misleading information to the plaintiff.
