Lexington, KY (PRWEB) February 24, 2012
On Wednesday, the United States District Court Eastern District of Kentucky dismissed a proposed class-action lawsuit against Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing, Inc. (FHTM). The judge ruled in favor of FHTM and all named individual defendants on their motion to compel arbitration. The judge upheld the arbitration clause contained in FHTM’s Independent Representative Agreement, determining that the Plaintiffs had contracted with FHTM, that the contract contained an enforceable arbitration clause for all of the plaintiffs’ claims, and therefore that the case should be dismissed.
FHTM is a direct selling company with a business model that has existed for over 100 years in the United States. The company has been in business for over 10 years and has operated with the highest ethical standards and business practices.
“We feel this is a just and correct decision by the federal court and we are glad that our Independent Representatives can once again conduct business without the challenge of this inappropriate lawsuit. ” said Keith Kuder, Chief Legal Officer for FHTM.
Paul Orberson, President and Founder of FHTM added, “We are excited about this ruling, but, frankly, we trusted the system to get the right result. FHTM is moving forward with the business of doing business.”
FHTM is a team of highly motivated and dedicated individuals working together toward a common goal: achieving success with integrity. FHTM provides an opportunity for thousands of FHTM Independent Representatives regardless of education, experience or current financial situation, to reach their goals through hard work and successful sales efforts. We strive to provide our Representatives with the support, encouragement and guidance they need in order to become the best possible advocates of our quality, name brand products and services. With the help of our invaluable Representatives, loyal customers and fantastic employees, FHTM has become a leader in the direct selling industry and will continue breaking barriers for generations to come.
