Court enables homeopathic class-action suit to proceed
A California federal judge has denied Hyland's Inc's. motion for summary judgment in a class-action suit alleging that claims that severalof its homeopathic products fight colds and influenza quickly and effectively are false and violate California law. The class-action complaint
contends that (a) homeopathy is a pseudoscience, (b) the product labels are false and misleading, and (c) the company promotes unwarranted fear and distrust of standard over-the-counter medicines. The judge rejected the company's argument that federal laws preempt the plaintiffs' claims. In April 2014, the court granted nationwide class status in the case
, which was filed in 2012 against Hyland's, Standard Homeopathic Co., and Standard Homeopathic Laboratories Inc. Lead plaintiffs Enzo Forcellati and Lisa Roemmich contend that the defendants misrepresented their children's cold and flu products as safe and effective even though they are "nothing more than sweetened, flavored water with . . . highly diluted concentrations of the products' so-called 'active ingredients.'" The judge said that the plaintiffs' claims raise a triable issue of fact and the suit could therefore proceed
