NEW HAVEN, Conn. (Legal Newsline) – A Florida consumer alleges that a brand of liquid lawn seeder does not perform as advertised.
Peter Geraci, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Nov. 1 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut against Eagle Eye Marketing Group Inc. alleging violation of Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act and Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 20, he purchased Hydro Mousse manufactured by the defendant because the product was advertised as a "quick and easy way" to grow grass. The plaintiff alleges that Hydro Mouse did not perform as advertised and did not grow any grass on his property.
The plaintiff holds Eagle Eye Marketing Group Inc, responsible because the defendant allegedly has not changed the marketing of the product or the product itself after three years of consumer complaints and actively concealed the defect from the consumers at the time of sale.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks award for all damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorneys' fees, costs, and such further relief that the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Joseph P. Guglielmo and Erin Green Comite of Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP in Colchester, Connecticut, and Joseph G. Sauder, Matthew D. Schelkopf and Joseph B. Kenney of McCune Wright Arevalo LLP in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, and two other firms.
