Defense Victory: Defense Victory: Call & Jensen Secures Dismissal of Herbal Testosterone Supplement Class Action

Call & Jensen’s attorneys secured a dismissal of a proposed federal consumer class action against Gencor, an Orange County, California-based herbal supplement manufacturer. The proposed class action accused Gencor and other defendants, including General Nutrition Corporation (GNC), of perpetrating a fraud on consumers by manipulating scientific data of the health effects of the herbal extract fenugreek. Call & Jensen moved to dismiss the lawsuit by attacking all twelve claims, including those brought under various California and New York consumer protection statutes and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. The U.S. District Judge agreed with Call & Jensen’s arguments and dismissed the lawsuit. The Call & Jensen team consisted of Matthew Orr and Joshua Simon.
