    Retailer Beware: When Does Discount Advertising Become Deceptive?

    12 PM EDT

    Online and brick-and-mortar retailers alike have been the target of class action litigation arguing that their discount advertising practices are deceptive. These lawsuits allege that when the defendant retailers advertise an item’s sale price in comparison to an original price, the original price is a ruse designed to deceive consumers into believing they are receiving a bargain. This program will discuss the uptick in deceptive price advertising litigation, recent enforcement activity, and best practices for complying with federal and state price advertising laws.
