July 2016: A federal judge preliminarily approved a proposed settlement of a false advertising class-action lawsuit against Unilever. The complaint, which was originally filed in 2013, alleges that the company falsely markets its TRESemmé Naturals line of shampoos and conditioners as “Natural” when they actually contain synthetic ingredients. According to the proposed settlement terms, the $3.25 million settlement fund will be used to pay class members, notice and administration costs, and attorneys’ fees. Class members without proof of purchase may receive $5 for each bottle purchased for up to 10 bottles per household while class members with proof of purchase may recover for more than 10 bottles per household. According to the proposed settlement, no injunctive relief is necessary because the company discontinued producing the products at issue. The final fairness hearing is scheduled for October 17, 2016. (Morales et al v. Conopco Inc. d/b/a Unilever, Case No. 13-cv-2213, E. D. CA.)
