Clothier Peddling 'Fake' Cashmere on Amazon, Lawsuit Claims
Litigation attorney Robert Kaler was quoted in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly about a recent lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court in Boston that claims a clothing company is selling scarves on Amazon.com falsely advertising that some of it's garments are "100% cashmere" and "made in Scotland" when they are in fact 100 percent acrylic and made in New Jersey. The Cashmere Institute, represented by Mr. Kaler, claims that Amazon was given actual notice of the mislabeling problem in 2019 and has failed to take necessary remedial action.
"From CCMI’s standpoint, the legal issue is a traditional one — the retailer’s obligation to ensure that the information on which the consumer relies to make his or her decision is accurate."
