LOS ANGELES – A consumer alleges a brand of convertible car seats concealed or failed to alert owners of the actual height and weight limitations on the seats.
Arriane Henryhand filed a complaint on behalf of similarly situated individuals on Jan. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Dorel Juvenile Group Inc. alleging unjust enrichment, violations of the False Advertising Law and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered damages from being misled into purchasing a convertible car seat that she claims does not function as advertised.

The suit states the defendant failed to disclose the accurate actual height and weight specifications of the seat, which the plaintiff alleges fails to accommodate children up to these limits.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks enjoin the defendant; compensatory, exemplary and statutory damages plus interest; disgorgement or restitution; all legal fees plus interest and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Lee A. Cirsch, Robert K. Friedl and Trisha K. Monesi of Capstone Law APC in Los Angeles.
