Hattis Law and LA City Attorney File False Discount Cases Against J.C. Penney, Kohl’s, Macy’s and Sears

December 8, 2016

Hattis Law announces that today, as co-counsel with the Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer and the law firm of Lieff Cabraser Heimann and Bernstein, it has filed four consumer fraud civil enforcement actions against national retailers: J.C. Penney, Kohl’s, Macy’s, and Sears.

These cases allege that to increase sales each of these companies has pervasively used “false reference pricing” schemes — whereby the companies advertise products at a purported “discount” from false “original” or “regular” prices — to mislead customers into believing they are receiving bargains.

Hattis Law is proud to join the Los Angeles City Attorney in continuing the fight to protect and vindicate consumer interests.
