Firms file class action against Walmart alleging DC Consumer Protection Act violations

January 24th, 2024

Yesterday, a class action complaint was filed in D.C. Superior Court against Walmart Inc. alleging that by advertising and offering goods without the intent to sell them as offered in their Washington, D.C., stores, Walmart violated the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Procedures Act (CPPA) (D.C. Code § 28-3905). Under the D.C. CPPA, consumers harmed by unlawful trade practicesmay sue for damages and may be awarded statutory damages of $1,500 per violation. The case was filed on behalf of class member Christina Rector, who is represented by Drew LaFramboise and Veronica Nannis of Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, and Nicole Fiorelli, Frank Bartela, Patrick Perotti and Shmuel Kleinman of Dworken & Bernstein.

“Shoppers rely on price information when making purchasing decisions and have virtually no ability to look across pricing patterns to see statutory violations,” said consumer fraud attorney Drew LaFramboise of Joseph Greenwald & Laake. “We want to ensure that the D.C. Consumer Protection Procedures Act guards purchasers against these unfair and deceptive trade practices.”
