Dominique Morrison v. Ross Stores, Inc.

 United States District Court for the Northern District of California |  Case No. : 4:18-cv-02671-YGR



WHAT IS THIS CASE ABOUT?
A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Ross Stores, Inc. The lawsuit claims that the thread count on cotton/polyester sheets imported and supplied by AQ Textiles, LLC and sold by Ross was false or deceptive. Ross stands by its advertising and denies it did anything wrong. The Court has not decided which side is right. Instead, the parties have decided to settle this case.

ARE YOU A CLASS MEMBER?
You are a class member if you purchased polyester-cotton blend (“Chief Value Cotton” or “CVC”) sheet sets supplied by AQ to Ross and sold by Ross between May 7, 2014 and November 29, 2021.

Ross is agreeing to require AQ to provide certain assurances for its Products, such as an annual certification that AQ’s products complies with the actual thread count pursuant to industry standards, reports as to whether there are any investigations or claims regarding its thread count representation, and provide passing test reports for thread count for any new styles of polyester/cotton sheets that it supplies to Ross. Ross has also agreed to pay the Class Counsel’s fees and costs of up to $790,000 and an incentive award to the class representative of up to $5,000.
