The HSUS v. Andrew Marc et al. (Fur False Advertising)
The HSUS filed a lawsuit in D.C. Superior Court against six of the nation's largest retailers and fashion designers for falsely advertising and mislabeling fur garments. The complaint alleges violations of the D.C. Consumer Protection Procedures Act, the federal Fur Products Labeling Act, and the Federal Trade Commission Act, as such deceptive practices mislead consumers into unknowingly purchasing real animal fur products and increase consumer confusion over the type of fur that is used on clothing.
