In August 2014, an appellate court affirmed a federal district court’s decision
to dismiss a false advertising lawsuit against Jos. A. Bank. According to the complaint, Jos. A. Bank deceptively advertises normal retail prices as temporary price reductions. The appellate court found
that, among other things, the named-plaintiff failed to allege facts showing he suffered actual damage (i.e. he did not provide evidence that he paid more than the actual value of the merchandise). (Camasta v. Jos. A. Bank Clothiers, Inc. aka Jos. A. Bank
, Case No. 13-2831, 7th Cir.).
