Row of Shirts on Dry Cleaner's Hangers

The complaint claims that “in 1994, the State of California estimated that the average woman is charged an extra $1,351.00 per year, simply for being a woman…” How so?

In this class action, the complaint alleges that GreenTree Cleaners, Inc., doing business as Hope Cleaners, charges women more than men for the exact same cleaning services.

FuelRod Kiosk

If a company makes a promise when a consumer first buys an item, must it continue to keep that promise for years to come? The complaint for this class action says yes.

Carton of Westsoy Vanilla Soymilk

Lately, a number of class actions have taken issue with the labeling of ice cream, almondmilk, and soymilk products as “vanilla,” claiming that the labeling does not meet federal requirements and gives consumers a false impression.

Sign Saying, "Western Union. Money Transfer."

If you try to send money to a party, should it take the sending company five years to tell you that the money was never received?
