Current Class Action Lawsuits

Laura Bugliaro v. BJ’s Wholesale Club, Inc., Case No. 2015-006256-CA-01, pending in the 11th Judicial Circuit in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida.

Allegations: When BJ’s Florida customers use discounts issued by BJ’s to make an in-store purchase, BJ’s still charges and collects “sales tax” on the full price of the item, notwithstanding application of the dealer’s discount.  Representing the Plaintiff, we filed an action, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, to recover the excess “sales tax” that BJ’s has unlawfully charged its Florida customers on the discounted price of items purchased with dealer discounts, coupons, rebates, or other dealer based price-reduction offers.  Plaintiff also seeks a declaration that BJ’s collection of sales tax is contrary to Florida law and should be enjoined.

Current Investigations

The attorneys at Kluger Kaplan are currently investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of consumers who purchased the product Vita Coco, a coconut water beverage.  Specifically, Kluger Kaplan is investigating whether the Vita Coco product is deceptively marketed and/or packaged as a Brazilian product when the product is not sourced in Brazil. If you have purchased and consumed Vita Coco from 2010 through the present and would like to learn more about the action and to seek appointment as a class representative, please contact Steve I.
