Avis won a false advertising suit against Hertz.

BRIEFLY

January 09, 1985

A U.S. District Court judge ruled that Hertz Corp., a unit of RCA, violated federal laws against false advertising with a claim in an ad that "Hertz has more new cars than Avis has cars." The court found that Avis, a unit of Beatrice Cos., in fact had 13,000 more cars in its fleet than Hertz had "new" cars. The court scheduled a hearing to assess damages. Hertz said it would appeal.
