Neiman Marcus to pay Humane Society $25,000

DALLAS (AP) - Neiman Marcus Inc. has agreed to pay a $25,000
judgment after a court found the luxury retailer falsely advertising two coats as being "faux fur" trimmed when the items had Asian raccoon dog fur.

The U.S. Humane Society in 2008 filed suit in Washington against Dallas-based Neiman Marcus and other retailers over the misidentified fur.

The Dallas Morning News reports that the consumer protection judgment against Neiman Marcus awaits final court approval.

Neiman Marcus spokeswoman Ginger Reeder declined comment

Saks Inc. and the Humane Society reached a $6,500 out-of-court settlement last week.

Animal rights group attorney Ralph Henry says manufacturer Andrew Marc and Lord & Taylor settled last year. Macy's Inc. remains a defendant.
