Discounts on Gap Factory and Banana Republic Factory Websites

February 2017: After the complaint was amended in December 2016, a federal judge dismissed claims for equitable relief (a nonmonetary judgment, such as a court order requiring a party to act or prohibiting a party from acting) because the named plaintiff has other remedies available to her. The claims were dismissed with prejudice. Other claims will move forward.

May 2016: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Gap and Banana Republic for allegedly deceptively advertising discounts on Gap Factory and Banana Republic Factory store websites by representing that consumers get a specified percentage off a listed “original” price when the items are actually never sold at the “original” price and the discounted prices are actually the everyday, regular prices. The lawsuit was transferred to federal court in July 2016. (Munning et al v. The Gap, Inc., Gap (Apparel) LLC, Gap International Sales, Inc., Banana Republic LLC, and Banana Republic (Apparel) LLC, Case No. 16-cv-3804, N. D. CA.)
