Duran v. Obesity Research Institute, LLC

Superior Court for the State of California, San Diego County

Case No. 37-2013-00048664-CU-BT-CTL

 

If You Purchased Lipozene Weight Loss Pills, You Could Be Entitled To Money From A Proposed Class Action Settlement



•  A Settlement has been reached between Obesity Research Institute, LLC, Continuity Products, LLC, Henny den Uijl, and Sandra den Uijl (“Defendants”) and DeMarie Fernandez, Alfonso Mendoza, and Fred Duran (“Class Representatives” or “Plaintiffs”), individually and on behalf of the Settlement Class.  The Proposed Settlement resolves a class action lawsuit about allegations that Defendants made false and misleading statements in their labeling and advertising regarding the effectiveness of Lipozene weight loss pills.  Defendants deny the allegations.  The Court did not rule in favor of either side.  The Parties agreed to the Settlement to avoid the expense and risks of continuing the lawsuit.

• You are a Class Member if you are a resident of the United States who purchased Lipozene weight loss pills from August 10, 2012 through October 28, 2019.    

• Class Members without Proof of Purchase may submit a Claim to receive $7 per unit of Lipozene, with a cap of 1 unit.  Class Members with Proof of Purchase may submit a Claim to receive a refund of the amount(s) shown on the Proof(s) of Purchase, up to $15 per unit, with a cap of 4 units.  The Claim amount may be subject to pro rata dilution if the total amount of Claims exceeds the available Settlement funds.
