SAN FRANCISCO – Consumers allege that a joint health supplement is falsely advertised.
Gordon Noboru Yamagata and Stamatis F. Pelardis filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on June 19 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Reckitt Benckiser LLC citing the Unfair Competition Law, the Legal Remedies Act, False Advertising Law and other counts.
According to the complaint, the defendant markets, sells and distributes joint health dietary supplements under the Schiff Move Free line. The plaintiffs hold Reckitt Benckiser LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly claims that their product could improve joint health, but the plaintiffs allege the main ingredients do not support or benefit joint health.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek restitution and disgorgement, injunctive relief, order the defendant to engage in a corrective advertising campaign, damages, all legal fees, interest and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Todd D. Carpenter of Carlson Lynch Sweet Kilpela & Carpenter LLP in San Diego and by Blood Hurst & O'Reardon LLP in San Diego.
