GEORGE LEE, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated v. CANADA GOOSE US, INC.,


A federal judge has ruled that Canada Goose  must face claims from a proposed class of consumers that its advertised commitment to “ethical, responsible and sustainable sourcing” is misleading because the company actually obtains coyote fur from inhumane sources such as strangulation snares and leghold traps. The court did, however, dismiss the claim for injunctive relief stating the plaintiff was unlikely to purchase additional Canada Goose products after learning how the fur actually is sourced and therefore “lacks standing to seek injunctive relief because he does not allege any injury that is ‘actual and imminent, not conjectural or hypothetical.’”
