SRBC Lawyers Settle Weight-Loss Class Action
SRBC partners David Barry and Andrew Levin have negotiated a class-action settlement on behalf of consumers of dietary supplement products marketed to promote weight loss in women. The class-action suit alleged that the products at issue, including "Slimquick" and others, were misleadingly advertised and described on their product labels, and that there was no scientific support for claims that use of the products led to weight loss. Further, it was alleged that some of the products did not even contain the key ingredients claimed to be in them. With Andy's assistance, David has served as co-lead counsel and liaison counsel for the plaintiffs throughout the four-year-old litigation.
For more information about the settlement, which has received preliminary approval from a Boston federal court and is scheduled for a final fairness hearing on November 17, 2011, see the official settlement website at www.wellnxusasettlement.com.
