Did Babies R Us spend years ripping off parents?

Babies are big business and no company is bigger in that space that Babies R Us. And that means no company has more influence over which baby products get sold.

It is that power and how it was used at issue in a class action lawsuit against the chain and its parent Toys R Us.

The lawsuit asserts the company threatened its suppliers -- some of the biggest names in the business -- and forced them to make sure no upstart competitor would beat its prices.

Corporate spokeswoman Jennifer Albano said the company will not comment on pending litigation.
