Walmart’s Banzai Inflatable Water Slides and Pools
June 2014: A federal judge denied Walmart’s motion to dismiss class-action claims that the store sells products with misleading pictures on the packaging. According to the complaint, the images on the Banzai-brand children’s inflatable waterslides and pools (which are sold at Walmart) make the waterslides and pools appear larger than they actually are. Although the judge did dismiss the claims under the consumer protection laws of several states, the judge allowed the claims under the consumer protection laws of other states – such as Maine, North Dakota, and Vermont – to move forward.
