Lady Sues Department Store Over 80 Cents!

As judge Marilyn Milian of The People's Court always says, it's not always about the money -- it's about the principle. Sometimes, people just like to waste the court's time. Case in point: Tova Gerson, who lives in Bergenfield, NJ, recently filed a CLASS ACTION lawsuit against Century 21 department store to recoup 80 cents she says the store owes her. Yesterday, however, she suddenly dropped the case.
Gerson claimed in her latest legal action that she used a $5 coupon when she bought more than $100 worth of stuff last month from the Century 21 store in Paramus, N.J. When she returned a pink infant's outfit a week later, Gerson complained she got back $17.17 instead of the $17.97 she had been expecting because the coupon had been pro-rated and applied to all the goods she purchased. So Gerson hired [lawyer Harry Katz], who is based in Fresh Meadows, Queens, and tried to up the ante by filing a class action suit demanding damages. Gerson has "been injured as a result of defendant's fraudulent conduct," the now-dead suit stated.
Bwahahahahahaha! In 2008, Tova filed a similar suit against Modell's sporting goods using the same lawyer. Things that make you go, hmmmm.
