What is this lawsuit about?
This lawsuit is about whether Premier Nutrition engaged in deceptive or unfair conduct in violation of New York consumer protection laws by advertising that its glucosamine and chondroitin supplement Joint Juice provides joint health benefits that it does not actually provide. Premier Nutrition denies these claims and asserts that its Joint Juice products provide the advertised joint health benefits.
Following trial and a jury verdict on June 7, 2022, the Court entered the Final Judgment in favor of the Plaintiff and the Class. The Final Judgment can be viewed here.
Who is a part of the Class?
