Ross Stores Sheet Thread Count Settlement

Settlement Structure: Claims Made

Active: Open

Case Summary:

Ross Stores, Inc. are settling a class action alleging that Ross made false and misleading claims about thread count on the packaging of Chief Value Cotton (CVC) sheets, a polyester-cotton blend. The sheets were imported and supplied by AQ Textiles, LLC, under a number of brand names, such as Grande Estate, Bentley Home, and Hampton House, and the packaging included AQ’s Registered Identification Number of 113585. The complaint alleges that the sheets were mislabeled so that customers bought sheets that were inferior in quality to what they believed they were paying for. The settlement does not offer any money for individual claims, but it asks for a court order to stop such representations in the future and other measures to make sure the misrepresentations do not continue.
