Kosher Consumers Can Sue

| |

Consumers who buy a product as a result of misleading advertising can sue the manufacturer even if the product was not defective, the California Supreme Court ruled Thursday.

The 5-2 decision resolved a long battle between consumers and business over the scope of Proposition 64, the 2004 ballot measure intended to end so-called “shakedown” lawsuits against business.

The initiative said a person could sue only if he or she suffered an injury and lost money as a result of the false advertising.
