Earlier this year, a federal district court in the State of Illinois certified a class action sweepstakes lawsuit in which an Illinois consumer alleged that HMI Industries, Inc., TD Bank, and A-1 Allergy Relief, Inc. violated the Illinois Prizes and Gifts Act, 815 ILCS 525/1, et seq. (“Prizes and Gifts Act”), Illinois Consumer Fraud and Abuse Act (“ICFA”), the Federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”), and the Federal Truth in Lending Act. The case is captioned Rench, et al. v. TD Bank, N.A., et al. (3:13-cv-922-SMY-RJD) and is currently pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.
