Class action law firms may have a new favorite, implausible class action lawsuit to snicker at. A recent class action was filed against Victoria's Secret alleging that the iconic company's bras contain formaldehyde. Now, I don't dispute that this may or may not be true and that harm may or may not have been suffered. But, I don't get on the surface how this class could possibly be certified. It would seem to me that the claims and harm suffered would be way too disparate and unique for class status. I could be wrong, in the meantime, this may become my favorite case since the Barbie v. Bratz battle royal in Riverside.
