ST. LOUIS — A consumer has filed a class-action lawsuit against Circle K Stores Inc., citing alleged false advertising.
Paul Weishaar, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated filed a complaint in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Circle K Stores, alleging that the Arizona corporation violated Missouri's Merchandising Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges the windshield wiper fluid froze even though it was advertised not to. As a result, he was forced to purchase other windshield wiper fluid and had to make repairs to his vehicle's wiper system. The plaintiff holds Circle K Stores responsible because the defendant allegedly falsely advertised that its windshield wiper fluid can protect the vehicle's wiper system to -20 degrees Fahrenheit.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order certifying this case as a class action and appointing plaintiff and his counsel as representatives, award for all damages, attorney's fees, costs and expenses and any other relief that are just and proper. He is represented by Ryan P. Horace of SWMW Law LLC in St. Louis and Steven J. Stolze of Holland Law Firm in St. Louis.
