July 2014: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Revolution Laboratories L.L.C. for allegedly deceiving consumers in its marketing for “Green Coffee Bean Extract,” a weight-loss dietary supplement. Plaintiffs claimed that the company misleadingly advertised the weight-loss supplement in a number of ways, including:

  • Representing that consumers who take the supplement will lose a substantial amount of weight without adequate support to make such claims,
  • Marketing a “free” 14-day trial package of the supplement when, in reality, consumers will be charged the purchase price if they do not cancel the trial within 14 days of placing the order, and
  • Representing that there are “no commitments” to the 14-day trial when, in reality, the company automatically subscribes consumers into a 6-month negative option purchase commitment (where the company will automatically ship and charge consumers for monthly supplies of the product).
