Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 24, 2013
A judge in the Northern District of Illinois has certified a nationwide class in a class action lawsuit filed against Abercrombie & Fitch (case no.10-cv-04866). The lawsuit, filed by Tiffany Boundas through her attorneys DiTommaso Lubin Austermuehle, P.C. and Schad, Diamond & Shedden, P.C., alleges that Abercrombie and abercrombie kids issued $25 gift cards to customers as part of a 2009 in-store winter holiday promotion. Abercrombie then voided the gift cards a couple months later despite language on the cards that stated “No Expiration Date.” By doing so, the lawsuit contends, Abercrombie breached its contracts with customers. The lawsuit seeks a payment of the value of the gift cards that customers could not redeem as a result of Abercrombie’s actions. Abercrombie contends that more than $5 million is at issue in this lawsuit.
