Discounts at Sears
August 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Sears Roebuck & Company for allegedly deceptively advertising discounts by comparing a sale price to a false former price. According to the complaint, the former price does not represent the price that the item was previously sold at or the prevailing market price within the three months immediately before the advertisement, as required by California law. (Teperson et al v. Sears Roebuck & Company, Case No. 15-cv-1892, S. D. CA.)
