LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A California woman alleges that the manufacturer and distributor of bed linens misrepresent the actual thread count in certain brands of sheet sets.
Sara Hawes, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on June 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against AQ Textiles LLC and Creative Textile Mills Private Limited alleging violation of Consumer Legal Remedies Act and other counts.
The suit states the plaintiff purchased a Somerset Collection queen-size sheet set manufactured by Creative Textiles and distributed by AQ Textiles that was advertised as having a 900 thread count. She alleges the true thread count of the sheets is 249.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants use deceptive acts and unconscionable business practices to deceive and mislead consumers and to boost their profits.
The suit also names Bradford, Fairfield Square, Sterling, Luxury Sateen and UltraLux as other brands manufactured and sold by the defendants that also allegedly do not have the advertised thread counts.
The plaintiff is seeking trial by jury, injunctive relief, compensatory damages, exemplary damages, attorneys’ fees, court costs and other relief deemed fit. The plaintiff is represented by S. Clinton Woods and Michael McShane of Audet & Partners LLP in San Francisco.
