SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) – A consumer claims that the thread counts of bedding and linen products sold at Ross stories were inflated.
Dominique Morrison filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on May 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Ross Stores Inc., AQ Textiles LLC and Creative Textile Mills Private LTD alleging violation of the Magnusson Moss Warranty Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff purchased Grande Estate 800TC Luxurious Sateen Weave sheets, which were imported by AQ Textiles and manufactured by Creative Textiles, at Ross' store. She alleges the true thread count of the sheets was "far less" than what was advertised.
The plaintiffs hold Ross Stores Inc., AQ Textiles LLC and Creative Textile Mills Private LTD responsible because the defendants allegedly misrepresented that their products had higher thread counts than what they actually had and unjustly profited from the sales of the products.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants, declaratory and injunctive relief, disgorge profits, restitution, issue corrective advertising, award exemplary damages, attorneys’ fees, expert witness fees, interest, other costs, and further legal or equitable relief as the court deems appropriate. She is represented by S. Clinton Woods and Michael McShane of Audet & Partners LLP in San Francisco and others.
