New Jersey State Court Successfully Dismisses Consumer Fraud Act Class Action Suit on Behalf of Olshan Client

The New Jersey Law Journal (subscription required) reported that Olshan partner Scott Shaffer achieved a full dismissal with prejudice of a Consumer Fraud Act class action suit on behalf of Pure Radiance, a distributor/manufacturer of wellness products. The suit was dismissed because the lawyer-plaintiff, Harold Hoffman, claimed that the purchased nutritional product did not perform as advertised. The lawyer-plaintiff asserted that the advertising for the consumer product made claims that were not substantiated by research, but in a first-of-its-kind state court decision, the court ruled that sort of claim is reserved for the attorney general, not a private plaintiff. The Court further ruled that the lawsuit failed to allege sufficient facts to state a claim under New Jersey’s Consumer Fraud Act.  Scott Shaffer was quoted as saying that “the judge’s ruling is correct in assessing the Consumer Fraud Act, and on behalf of the client, I’m pleased with the ruling.”
