Sometimes a lawsuit just does not make sense to me. One is a class action lawsuit that has been filed against the clothing retailer, Jos. A. Bank, for alleged deceptive sales practices. Jos. A. Bank almost always has some sort of sales promotion going on and it offers deals on a regular basis.  The suit claims that the buyers were induced to buy clothes because they were afraid that the deal would go away; it doesn't claim that they got something different than what they intended to buy or that they wound up paying more than they intended. Instead, the lawsuit claims that they got exactly what they wanted at exactly the price that they agreed to pay. 

I just don't get lawsuits like this. I don't see the violation and I don't see the injury. My view is that suits like this undermine the legitimacy of real, actual claims.  You can read more at the Lexington Herald-Leader Jos. A Bank Faces Lawsuit Over Sales Prices
