Richard Pu v IAR Apple Optical – NY Civ. Ct., Index # 057407/08
Rosenberg & Rodriguez successfully defended an optical store in a consumer transaction lawsuit. This unusual case arose out of the sale of a pair of custom-made designer eyeglasses.
The plaintiff, a suspended attorney, alleged that IAR Apple Optical was engaged in wide-scale consumer fraud because it allegedly failed to honor a lowest price guaranty offered to all of its customers. The plaintiff sued for fraud, breach of contract, deceptive business practices and defamation.
After several years of contentious litigation, R&R was able to obtain the dismissal of the entire lawsuit.
