Lawsuit

Food plate from Tacos al Suadero

Tacos al Suadero is a restaurant with three locations in Queens, New York, with the legal name of GAL Food Corporation. The complaint for this class action alleges that the restaurant and its owners did not pay employees for the overtime they worked, among other violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA) and the New York Labor Law (NYLL).

MoneyGram Sign on Building

As the world has become smaller via electronic transactions, fraud and money laundering have become more of a concern for regulators. The complaint for this securities class action claims that MoneyGram International, Inc. provided false or misleading information to shareholders about its fraud- and money laundering-prevention measures. 

For Your Entertainment Logo

Trans World Entertainment Corporation runs For Your Entertainment (FYE), which sells entertainment, video, and music products; Synapse Group, Inc. is a magazine marketer. The complaint for this class action claims that the two companies partnered to charge consumers for memberships and magazine subscriptions that they had not agreed to purchase.

Letters "TCPA" and Concentric Circle Design

It’s odd that some companies don’t seem to understand that most consumers dislike robo-telemarketing in all its forms. It’s even odder that some don’t seem to realize that it’s also illegal in many cases. The complaint for this class action alleges that Gym Consulting, Inc., doing business as My Gym Enterprises, sent text messages to consumers in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

Target Bullseye Logo

Consumer reports play an ever-larger role in American life. They are now ordered not just by credit card companies or mortgage lenders but prospective employers and landlords. The complaint for this class action claims that Target corporation did not properly report an individual’s discharged debt, causing an invalid debt to appear on his credit report.

Shoes from Payless ShoeSource

Does a person with a disability have equal access to a bricks-and-mortar store if he can’t access its website to find out hours of operation or to order goods for pickup? The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that businesses take steps so that people with certain disabilities can make equal use of public accommodations. But the complaint for this class action alleges that Payless ShoeSource, Inc. maintains a website that has barriers to use by blind and visually-impaired people, thus limiting their access to its goods and services.

Ulta Beauty Cosmetics and Logo

This is the second employment-related class action brought against Ulta Beauty, Inc. in a short period of time. The complaint claims that the company, formerly known as Ulta Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc., were not paid proper wages for all hours worked, including overtime wages, and that they were neither allowed to take full rest breaks nor compensated for not taking them. 

Four Sparkling Ice Drinks in Bottles

Talking Rain Beverage Company, Inc. has an unusual name, but the allegations in this class action are not at all unusual. The complaint claims that the company’s Sparkling Ice drinks, which the company labels as being naturally-flavored, actually contain an artificial flavoring ingredient, malic acid. 

Container of Bob Evans Original Mashed Potatoes

Butter is once again popular, driven by the desire for natural foods and the idea that fats are not as bad for you as they once seemed. BEF Foods, Inc. advertises its Bob Evans mashed potatoes as being “Made with Real Milk & Butter” on the front of the packaging, but the complaint for this class action claims that butter is only a component of something the ingredient panel calls a “butter blend.”

Figure Carrying Letters D-E-B-T on Its Back

Not all consumers understand that they cannot be sued for a consumer debt once the statute of limitations on it expires. But perhaps even fewer know that if they make a single payment after that, the statute of limitations may be restarted, and that they can again be sued for the debt. The complaint for this class action claims that Contract Callers, Inc. violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by not making this clear to consumers.
