Is your favorite online retailer using fake sale prices to trick you into thinking you’re getting a better deal than you actually are? Are they advertising limited-time deals that don’t seem so limited? Attorneys are investigating a handful of companies to determine if they’re engaging in these practices – and, if so, whether class action lawsuits can be filed over potential violations of consumer protection laws. Specifically, Wigs.com, DailySale.com, SOLE Fitness, EyeBuyDirect.com and a handful of poster websites are among those being investigated. If you bought products on sale at any of these online shops, tell us about it over on our dedicated page.

The maker of Vizzy hard seltzer is facing a proposed class action that claims the Mimosa variety is mislabeled as it lacks champagne – one of the only two ingredients in the traditional drink. The case also argues that the drink is not clearly labeled in a manner that discloses to consumers that they are drinking a malt beverage, essentially a flavored beer, the filing argues. Want more?

A recently filed lawsuit is claiming that, for nearly a decade, the Walt Disney Company has known that the pool area at its Disney Aulani resort is excessively slippery yet has failed to do anything about the problem. Despite numerous slip-and-fall reports (including one involving the plaintiffs’ child), the lawsuit contends that Disney “does not have, and has never had, an adequate corporate policy” to prevent these types of incidents.
