Claim Form Deadline
Garcia v. Iovate Health Sciences USA Inc., Case No. 1402915, in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Santa Barbara
The Iovate Hydroxycut class action lawsuit was initially filed in 2012 by a plaintiff who says he relied on allegedly false and misleading statements on labeling and in advertisements regarding the effectiveness of Hydroxycut products, and that such statements violate state consumer protection laws, the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act and warranties related to Hydroxycut. According to the Hydroxycut lawsuit, Iovate was unjustly enriched as a result of these allegedly false and misleading statements.
Iovate denies the allegations but agreed to settle the Hydroxycut class action lawsuit to avoid the expense and distraction of litigation.
UPDATE: The Final Approval Hearing was moved from August 20 to November 12, 2014. As of December 2, no documents were filed with the Court regarding the outcome of this hearing.
