Slater Vecchio LLP has filed a class action lawsuit in both British Columbia and Quebec alleging that Boohoo, PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal have deceived Canadians into purchasing fashion products that are worth much less than these companies advertise.
Through their Canadian websites, Boohoo, PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal offer fashion products alongside representations as to the regular price and discount prices of these products. Despite representing that these products are normally offered for sale at their regular price, and in turn are rarely offered at a discount, the opposite is true. Boohoo, PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal rarely, if ever, offer these products for sale at their ‘regular price’ and instead always, or almost always, offer them for sale at a so-called discount price well below the alleged regular price.
As a result of this conduct, individuals who purchased a fashion product from Boohoo, PrettyLittleThing or Nasty Gal obtained less value than these companies represented they would obtain by purchasing these products.
A class action is a legal case through which one person makes a claim to the Court on behalf of a similarly situated class of people who have the same or a similar legal claim. A class action seeks to hold a defendant or defendants responsible for their conduct that affects each member of the class by resolving issues that are common to the class in the same legal proceeding, instead of each class member bringing a claim individually.
The individual who files the claim must ask the Court for permission to proceed as a class action. If permission is granted, and the case may proceed as a class action, the Court will appoint an individual as “Representative Plaintiff” to represent the best interests of the class during the litigation and define the class group. Each person who meets the criteria of the class group is considered a “Class Member”.
Slater Vecchio LLP seeks compensation for all individuals and legal persons in Canada who purchased one or more fashion products from Boohoo, PrettyLittleThing or Nasty Gal at a “discount price” that was lower than the product’s alleged regular price.
