The laws governing false advertising claims are complex and involve both state and federal law.

Minnesota has its own false advertising or deceptive trade practices act. In Minnesota, any person, firm, corporation or business with the intent to sell or dispose of goods or services, who publishes or disseminates an advertisement that contains any material assertion, misrepresentation, misleading statement or deceptive practice with the intent that others rely on it in connection with a sale is liable.

As you can see this area of law is complex and can also involve other related but separate claims like fraud.

Deceptive Trade Practices Claims often go Hand in Hand with Claims of False Advertising.

Lots of different kinds of conduct is prohibited under the deceptive trade practices act, but some examples of prohibited conduct include advertising goods or services with the intent not to sell them as advertised, advertising goods or services with the intent not to supply reasonably expected public demand unless the advertising discloses the limited quantity, and passing off goods or services as those of another.
