LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – Nordstrom is alleged to have double-charged consumers for their purchases and a California consumer has filed suit to stop the practice.
Julie Killpack filed a complaint individually and on behalf of other members of the general public similarly situated on Sept. 15, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Nordstrom Inc. and Does 1-100 citing the Unfair Competition Law.
According to the complaint, on Nov. 27, 2016, Killpack placed an online order through the defendant for the total amount of $240 and used a Visa card. She alleges on Dec. 1, 2016, she noticed additional charges on her credit card statement and was told by the defendant that they were authorization charges that would drop off later. She alleges that because of these charges, she was placed over her card limit and lost airline points.
The plaintiffs hold Nordstrom Inc. and Does 1-100 responsible because the defendants allegedly benefited from falsely advertising the prices of the service and deceived plaintiff and other class members by concealing any mention of authorization charges.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants, appoint plaintiff as representative of the class, punitive and statutory damages, interest and other relief the court may deem just. She is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Meghan E. George and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills, California.
