MADISON, Wis. (Legal Newsline) — A home improvement store is being sued by people in six states for allegedly violating the terms and conditions of rebates the company offered.
A class action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court Western District of Wisconsin earlier this month against Menard, INC. (or Menards) and John Does 1-10.
Plaintiffs Debbie Rider, Steve Schussler, Trent Shores, Barry Earls, Ryan Ingalls, David Kiel, Cassie Lietaert, Nazar Mansoor, Cody Italia, Thomas Fetsch, Karen Fleckenstein, Amy Childers and Christ Jesse are trying to put an end to Menards' alleged ongoing misrepresentation and broken rebate program and want to force them to pay its customers for the 11% refund promised to them.
The plaintiffs from Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, and Wisconsin claimed despite submitting the necessary documentation in a timely fashion, they only received a portion of the 11% rebate without any explanation as to why. Some of the plaintiffs allegedly never received their rebate.
All the plaintiffs believe the company uses the rebate program to market to customers in the competitive marketplace for home improvement and deceives customers through the said rebates.
Attorneys with Atterbury, Kammer & Haag, S.C. and Tycko & Zavareei LLP are representing the 13 plaintiffs on behalf of themselves and others similarly situated.
