SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Legal Newsline) – Three California residents allege they purchased bed linens that were not Egyptian cotton as advertised by the India-based textile manufacturer Welspun.
Harold Brower, Ashley Mistler and Judi Talili, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on May 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Welspun India LTD alleging violation of California Consumer Legal Remedies Act, the state's Unfair Competition Law and other counts.
The defendant distributes and markets Welspun-made bed linens with the claims that the linens are made from 100 percent Egyptian cotton, the suit states. The plaintiffs allege the linens are marketed under the Fieldcrest, Perfect Touch and Better Homes & Gardens labels.
The plaintiffs allege the linens are made with inferior and less expensive non-Egyptian cotton. The plaintiffs allege this misrepresentation violates federal and state laws such as the Textile Fiber Products Identification Act.
The plaintiffs are seeking a trial by jury; compensatory, punitive and statutory damages; interest; attorneys' fees; and other relief deemed fit. The plaintiffs are represented by L. Timothy Fisher, Joel D. Smith, Frederick J. Klorczyk III and Scott A. Bursor of Bursor & Fisher PA.
