August 2015:
A class-action lawsuit was filed against Rooms to Go (a furniture store chain) for allegedly deceptively promising that consumers who purchase the “ForceField Exclusive Fabric Protection Plan” will receive furniture that has been “professionally treated … to resist food and beverage spills” when, according to plaintiffs, the furniture is not professionally treated with any additional fabric treatment. (Hankinson et al v. R.T.G. Furniture Corp., d/b/a Rooms to Go, Case No. 15-cv-81139, S. D. FL.)
