Greenwood v. Telebrand Corp Case No. 14CV-0336 Superior Court of California County of San Luis Obispo
This lawsuit was filed against Telebrands Corp. (“Telebrands” the “Company” or “Defendant”) in the Superior Court for the State of California, County of San Luis Obispo, on behalf of the Settlement Class (the “Action”). The complaint alleges that Defendant marketed its Products through advertising that consumers would receive an additional product as a “bonus” or for “free” when in reality consumers were charged and required to pay shipping, processing or handling charges in excess of what is permitted by law. The complaint seeks damages, injunctive and declaratory relief under California’s False Advertising Law, which makes it unlawful as part of an advertising plan or program, or by any other means, for a retailer to represent that the consumer will receive a free gift (or other similar term) and that as a condition of receiving the free gift, the consumer must pay money for shipping that exceeds the average cost of postage or the exact amount for the shipping or that the consumer must pay for handling that is not reasonable or exceeds the actual cost of handling or the greater of $3.00 or 80% of the actual cost of the gift item.
