Bait and Switch Lawsuits

Class Action Lawsuits And Bait And Switch Investigations

Bait and switch lawsuits are a classic case of consumer harm. A class action lawsuit is a legal suit wherein a group of people, usually represented by attorneys or law firms, charge a defendant or corporation to act in a way that causes injury to a class of similarly situated consumers. In this example, the victim is the defendant or corporation. If the victim was a large manufacturer like John Deere, a local company might be liable for selling a tractor that was not certified for heavy use, when it may have been legally purchased for light work.

These lawsuits are based on the premise that nursing homes systematically and intentionally deceive their elderly patients about the nature of their jobs in order to make more money.

For instance, one plaintiff in Florida has alleged that an agency that was supposed to help her with a nursing home job, repeatedly sent her phony letters on her behalf. She later discovered that her compensation package did not include any training for the specific tasks she was supposed to perform at the nursing home.

Other plaintiffs have alleged that their nursing home residents were given wrong prescriptions and information regarding the dangers of particular medications.

Others have alleged that doctors and nursing home staff withheld medications from nursing home residents, in an effort to induce them to stay in their beds instead of going to a doctor. In one case, a nurse was fired for refusing to administer medicine to a bedridden nursing home resident. The court found that this action violated the state’s statute of disability discrimination. As a result of this event, many more nursing home residents are suing their nursing homes and doctors and filing claims for damages. Each of these lawsuits is being reviewed by the courts, in an attempt to determine whether or not to grant class action status to these cases.

Another bait and switch lawsuit involve buying wholesale NFL jerseys online.

In this scenario, someone buys the tickets they want, and then either sells them on eBay or Craigslist (an online classified advertisement service). In order to receive the full amount of the sale, the plaintiff must then buy the same number of NFL jerseys that they sold – for real. Once they’ve received the money, they return the jerseys to the original seller. According to the complaint, this is a violation of California Civil Code Section 632.5.

Although this example is extreme, you could also get a class action lawsuit based on your own actions.

If you purchased wholesale NFL jerseys but later allowed your kids to wear the same jerseys in order to “insure” you’ll pay their high school team tickets, you could be in trouble. The same could apply if you bought cheap plane tickets only to allow your spouse to fly with them. Now both of you have bought tickets, yet you’re keeping the tickets and your spouse has already boarded the plane. You could get token damages for the misuse of credit cards.

There are many more examples of the above mentioned scenarios.

You could use the examples above to determine whether you could use the examples of bait and switch lawsuits to get tokens in a class action lawsuit. It’s probably not a good idea to attempt to predict how a court might rule on these cases, but these examples do show how anyone could probably get tokens in a class action lawsuit if they are willing to litigate.
