Overview Of The Settlement

Danielle Correa and Jennifer Teeples v. Sensa Products, LLC, et al., Case No. BC476808

A settlement has been approved in a class action 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 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?

The 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.
