LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) January 25, 2019
ILYM Group Inc., a neutral third party that has been court appointed as Claims Administrator for this case, announces that Class Counsel, Kirk B. Hulett, Alex Tomasevic and Michael T. McColloch, have reached an agreement to resolve a class action pending against Metagenics, Inc. in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. The lawsuit alleges that Metagenics Inc. made false and misleading statements about some of its “Medical Food” products and that they should not have been labelled as “Medical Food.” Under the terms of the settlement, Metagenics, Inc. denies any liability but agreed to fund a $1.3 Million settlement to fully resolve this matter without the time and expense of a court proceeding.
The settlement has been preliminarily approved by the United States District Court for the Central District of California, Grivas v. Metagenics, Inc., Case no. 15-cv-01838-CJC-DFM and is subject to the court’s final approval. The Settlement Class consists of all persons who purchased any of the following Metagenics products labelled as “Medical Foods” in the United States since November 9, 2011: UltraMeal Plus, UltraMeal Plus 360, UltraGlycemX, and UltraClear.
The settlement fund will be used to pay an incentive award to the named plaintiff, the notice and claims administration costs, attorneys’ fees and costs, and to eligible Class Members who submit a claim under the procedures implemented by the Court overseeing the settlement.
