BROOKLYN, N.Y. (Legal Newsline) – Three consumers allege a Yeti product does not securely hold cans and bottles in place as advertised.
Lance Peroutka, Nikki Pribow and Otis Fung, individually on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Nov. 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York against Yeti Coolers LLC over alleged violation of Wisconsin Deceptive Trade Practices Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs purchased defendant's Rambler Colster and the defendant claims that the product secures drinks in place and fits cans and bottles. The plaintiffs allege this representation is false as the product’s design permits cans and bottles to slip out while consumers are attempting to drink.
The plaintiffs hold Yeti Coolers LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly misleadingly, inaccurately and deceptively presents it product to consumers.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment for preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, monetary and punitive damages, costs, expenses and such other and further relief as the court may deem just and proper. They are represented by Jacob E. Miota of Miota Law LLC in Milwaukee and Michael C. Lueder of Hansen Reynolds LLC in Milwaukee.
