(UNDATED) - The ancient marketplace principle of caveat emptor ("let the buyer beware") prevailed when the U.S. 1st Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the dismissals of two lawsuits that accused two national retailers - Nordstrom Inc. and Kohl's Department Stores Inc.- of using deceptive pricetags to trick consumers into believing that they were getting a discount on merchandise they bought.
