An online furniture retailer, Elite Purchasing Group, was recently sued by the State of Florida for Deceptive Trade Practices. In the complaint, Florida alleged that the company falsely implied that it had a special relationship with manufacturers that would allow it to get furniture to consumers on a fast turnaround. In fact, according to the complaint, no special relationship existed, and the defendant often delivered items late, or not at all.
