Bondi is asking that the company be ordered to honor the lifetime warranty for any products purchased before the Feb. 9 change and to recover damages for all Illinois residents who bought items from L.L. Bean before the new policy, The Chicago Tribune reported.
Company spokeswoman Carolyn Beem told the Tribune that the suit misrepresents the new policy.
"L.L. Bean products bought prior to Feb. 9, 2018, will not be subject to the new one-year restriction. Proof of purchase will continue to be required. That is what we have consistently told customers since the new policy was announced last Friday," Beem said in an emailed statement to the Tribune.
The change in policy came after company officials said it lost $250 million over five years on items that were "destroy quality" that had been returned.
