Lawsuit

Robot on Telephone

Companies still use telemarketing campaigns to sell their goods and services, despite the fact that the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) has limited their ability to intrude on customers with unwanted calls and messages for many years now. The complaint for this class action alleges that Givesurance Insurance Services, Inc. sent unwanted text messages to consumer cell phones, in violation of the TCPA.

Eddie Bauer Outlet Racks

Eddie Bauer, like a lot of brand-name stores, operates outlet stores which carry “direct-to-outlet” merchandise. Unfortunately, like a lot of outlet stores, the complaint for this class action alleges, Eddie Bauer outlets use false reference pricing to make customers think they’re getting a bigger bargain than they are.

Three workers in protective gear performing industrial cleaning

Three plaintiffs bring this labor action under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Arkansas Minimum Wage Act (AMWA). The primary issue is the time workers spent putting on extensive protective gear required for their jobs with Thompson Industrial Services, LLC and what effect that time has on their paychecks.

Total Loss Vehicle (Crashed into Lighting Pole)

When an automobile is totaled in an accident, the company that insured the vehicle must pay the owner its actual cash value (ACV). The issue in this class action is that insurer First Acceptance Insurance Company, Inc. does not include all costs of replacing the vehicle, such as title transfer fees.

Box Containing Flex Belt Product

Can an electrical muscle stimulator (EMS) cause you to lose belly fat and give you “six pack" abs? No, says the complaint for this class action. In fact, it alleges that the Flex Belt from Slendertone Distribution, Inc. is a Class II medical device that requires approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Cattle Feeding on Grain

Most antitrust cases are about attempts to raise prices or keep them high. This one is about depressing prices and keeping them low. The complaint alleges that meat packing companies colluded to collapse the price of fed cattle in the market for meat “through coordinated procurement practices and slaughter restraint.”

AMR Ambulance Showing Company Markings

The complaint for this class action brings suit under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) but also under California’s Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (RFDCPA). It claims that American Medical Response Ambulance Service, Inc., which does business as AMR, placed debt collection calls in ways that violate the two laws.

Package of Oreos

Oreos, promoted as “Milk’s Favorite Cookie,” are the subject of this class action. The question at issue is a line that its maker, Mondelez Global, LLC, puts on the front of packages of Oreos: “Always Made With Real Cocoa.” The complaint claims that they are not.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Property with Swimming Pool

When data breaches happen, it’s important that companies discover them promptly, put an end to them promptly, and just as promptly let customers know. This data breach class action, against Starwood Hotels & Resorts and its parent company, Marriott International, Inc., claims that hackers had access to customer data for four years and that the companies waited for more than two months before publicizing the breach when they discovered it.

Verde Energy USA Logo

More than one class action has shown the difficulties of knowing how much competing energy companies will charge customers once their initial teaser rates have expired. This complaint alleges that Verde Energy USA, Inc. rolls customers over into expensive “variable rate” plans that don’t seem to vary much when rates fall.
