LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles man has filed a class action lawsuit against CVS Pharmacy, alleging false advertising, breach of express warranty and unfair competition.
Alexander Forouzesh filed a complaint, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, Nov. 16 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against CVS Pharmacy Inc. and Does 1-25, alleging they obtained profit through unfair or deceptive trade or commerce.
According to the complaint, Forouzesh and other similarly situated consumers suffered injury and lost money, as a result of the fraudulent misrepresentations and omissions of CVS regarding its CVS Sport 100+ sunscreen spray product containing the UV protection as advertised.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants misled and withheld material information from consumers in order to increase sales, and introduced a deceptive product into the market.
Forouzesh seeks trial by jury, certify the case as a class action, award restitution and disgorgement, injunctive relief, start a corrective advertising campaign, plus attorney fees, court costs and all relief the court deems just. He is represented by attorneys Justin Faahi and Raymond M. Collins of Farahi Law Firm in Torrance.
