08:02 EDTHLFHerbalife wins dismissal of class action 'pyramid scheme' lawsuit
On March 16, a judge in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California granted Herbalife its motion to dismiss a class action complaint brought on behalf of shareholders who allege that the company and its executives violated federal securities laws by misrepresenting the "nature, scope and legality" of the company's business and operations. According to the plaintiffs, Herbalife and its executives, including CEO Michael Johnson, misrepresented Herbalife as a legitimate multi-level marketing company when it "is actually an illegal pyramid scheme." The court concluded that the suit's plaintiffs have not adequately pled loss causation, meaning that the court need not consider Herbalife’s alternative arguments, according to a court filing. Shares of Herbalife are up 3% in pre-market trading after the court dismissal was widely reported by Bloomberg last night.
