Capaci v. Sports Research

Case No. 2:19-cv-03440-FMO-FFM

U.S. District Court for the Central District of California

If you purchased Sports Research Cambogia that was labeled “weight management” and/or “appetite suppression” (“Product”) in the United States since April 26, 2015 for personal and household use, and not for resale, and did not receive a refund or return the Product, a class‐action lawsuit may affect your rights

A lawsuit has been filed against Sports Research Corporation alleging that it falsely, deceptively and unlawfully marketed the Sports Research Garcinia Cambogia product as providing “weight management” and/or “appetite suppression” benefits. Defendant denies these allegations.  The court has not yet decided whether the Plaintiff or the Defendant are correct. Defendant has not been ordered to pay any money.  There has been no settlement.

The Court has allowed the lawsuit to proceed as a class action on behalf of:

  • Nationwide Class: All persons who purchased Sports Research Cambogia that was labeled “weight management” and/or “appetite suppression” (“Product”) in the United States since April 26, 2015. The class is limited to those who purchased the Product for personal and household use, and not for resale, and who did not receive a refund or return the Product.
  •  California Sub-Class: All persons who purchased Sports Research Cambogia that was labeled “weight management” and/or “appetite suppression” (“Product”) in the State of California since April 26, 2015. The class is limited to those who purchased the Product for personal and household use, and not for resale, and who did not receive a refund or return the Product.

Excluded from the class is Defendant and Defendant’s past and present officers, directors, employees, agents and affiliates, and any judge who presides over the action.

The Court has not decided whether the Defendant has in fact violated the law. The sole purpose of this Notice is to inform you of the lawsuit so that you can make an informed decision as to whether you should remain in or opt out of this Class Action. There is no money available now and no guarantee that there will be. However, your legal rights are affected, and you have a choice to make now:

 

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS LAWSUIT
DO NOTHING Stay in this lawsuit. Await the outcome. Give up certain rights.

By doing nothing, you keep the possibility of sharing in any recovery (monetary or otherwise) that may come from a trial or a settlement. But you give up any right you may have to sue the Defendant separately about the same legal claims in this lawsuit, and you will be bound by the outcome of this case.

ASK TO BE EXCLUDED BY SEPTEMBER 21, 2023
Get out of this lawsuit. Get no benefits from it. Keep rights.
If you ask to be excluded you will not be bound by what the Court does in this case and will keep any right you might have to sue the Defendant separately about the same legal claims in this lawsuit. If a recovery is later awarded in this case, you would not share in that recovery.
