In December 2015, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Saks for allegedly misleadingly advertising discounts of merchandise. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the store compares “sale” prices to false “market” prices when, according to plaintiffs, the “market” prices were “artificially inflated,” were never the original prices for the merchandise, and were not the prevailing market retail prices within the three months immediately before the advertisement, as required by California law. (Nunez et al v. Saks Incorporated and Does 1-50, Case No. 15-cv-2717, S. D. CA.)
