Two consumers have filed a class action lawsuit against Wilson Sporting Goods Co. for alleged breach of implied warranty, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.

CHICAGO — Two consumers have filed a class action lawsuit against Wilson Sporting Goods Co. for alleged breach of implied warranty, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.

Theodore Sheeley and Timothy Walker filed a complaint on April 12 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendant violated the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they purchased the defendant's baseball bats because they allegedly were labeled and advertised as being "USSSA" compliant. 

However, certain DeMarini baseball bats the defendant sold allegedly failed to comply with USSSA's requirements even though they allegedly were labeled as USSSA certified.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek actual or compensatory damages, reasonable attorney's fees, costs and any further relief the court deems reasonable and just. They are represented by Myles McGuire and Paul T. Geske of McGuire Law PC in Chicago and Scott A. Morgan of Morgan Law Firm Ltd. in Chicago.
