Target Corp. has been sued in Los Angeles County Superior Court for fraud, false advertising and a number of other charges by a consumer who claims she was shortchanged on coupons.
The lawyer representing Karina Olivarria, a resident of Los Angeles County, seeks class-action status to include consumers in California and the nation.
Target said Tuesday that it had fixed a glitch it had known about for months that was causing certain manufacturer's coupons to ring up inaccurately.
In the complaint Olivarria said she ran into problems when she visited a Target in Gardena, Calif., on Oct. 14. She bought approximately $36 worth of Huggies baby products, and presented three coupons totaling $9. Olivarria received a discount of $7.48, $1.52 short of the coupons' amount, according to court documents.
