Unsupported Assertions?



A group of plaintiff's attorneys are attempting to ruin the holiday shopping season by denying the procrastinating male masses their choice of fancy underwear gifts, CNN reports. At least one woman has already filed suit against Victoria's Secret alleging that her bra contained trace amounts of formaldehyde, causing welts and blisters, and several other women have come forward to second the allegations. A class action suit is apparently threatened. Victoria's Secret denies that it uses formaldehyde in any of its processes.

If your bra makes you itchy, you should be allowed to return it, but a multimillion dollar class action suit seems a bit much. This is potentially the most serious legal assault on a woman's right to look good in a halter top since the baseless breast implant cases of the 1990s.
