In December 2016, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against J. C. Penney for allegedly falsely advertising discounts by marking up the prices of products in order to make its “discounts” appear to be a good deal and induce consumers to purchase products. The case was transferred from state court to federal court in January 2017. (Cavlovic et al v. J.C. Penney Corp.
, Case No. 17-cv-2042, D. KS.)
