Settlement Proposed in Sensa Weight Loss Class Action LawsuitLos Angeles, CA: A settlement has been preliminarily approved in a consumer fraud class action lawsuit challenging certain advertising claims about the Sensa® Weight Loss System (“Sensa®”).
The settlement includes all persons who purchased Sensa® prior to August 21, 2012 (except Linda Breeding, Melanie Gordon, Polin Mahboubian, and Shahriyar Bolandian).
This lawsuit, entitled Danielle Correa and Jennifer Teeples v. Sensa Products, LLC, et al., Case No. BC476808, is about Sensa®’s advertising. Plaintiffs allege that Defendant did not have a sufficient scientific basis for certain of its marketing claims. In response, Defendant provided information and evidence supporting its advertising claims, including three product studies and significant scientific research regarding neurology and the science of smell and taste. Subsequently, the parties reached an agreement to avoid the time and expense of litigation.
What Does The Settlement Provide?
If approved, the proposed settlement will provide up to $6,000,000 for notice/administration costs, class representative payments, and cash benefits to class members who submit a claim and up to $3,000,000 in fees and costs for the lawyers who represented the Settlement Class.
Submit a Claim Form - To qualify for a payment under the settlement, you must submit a claim form. You can download a Claim Form on this website. Read the instructions carefully and mail the claim form so that it is received or postmarked no later than December 13, 2012.
Be Excluded from the Settlement - Receive no payment. This is the only option that allows you to ever be part of any other lawsuit against the Defendant or anyone else about the legal claims in this case. You must mail your exclusion request so that it is received or postmarked no later than October 29, 2012.
Object to the Settlement - If you are a Settlement Class member, you can object to the settlement if you do not like any part of it. Objections must be mailed received or postmarked no later than October 29, 2012.
Final Approval Hearing
The Court will hold a Final Approval Hearing on November 7, 2012, at which the Court will consider whether the settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate. If there are objections, the Court will consider them. The Court may also decide how much to pay Settlement Class Counsel and the Class Representatives. After the hearing, the Court will decide whether to approve the settlement. We do not know how long these decisions will take.
