Sales at Best Buy
October 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Best Buy for allegedly misleadingly advertising discounts by comparing a “sale” price to a false former retail price. According to the complaint, the retail price did not represent a price at which Best Buy formerly sold the product or the prevailing retail price within the three months immediately before the advertisement, in violation of Minnesota and California law. (Nunez et al v. Best Buy Co., Inc., Case No. 15-cv-3965, D. MN.)
