There are at least two reasons that consumers like plaintiff Shana Harris are willing to pay more for furniture upholstered in genuine leather. Leather looks attractive and, if it is taken care of, it wears well over many years. According to the complaint for this class action, it was only when the “leather” ottoman Harris had bought at Target had begun flaking and looking bad that she suspected that it was covered in something cheaper than leather. The complaint alleges negligent misrepresentation, violations of California’s Unfair Competition and False Advertising Laws and Legal Remedies Act, and breaches of warranty.
