SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) – A New Jersey consumer has filed a class action lawsuit against a dietary supplement maker alleging its joint health products do not work as advertised.
Antonette Taylor filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Dec. 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Premier Nutrition Corp., formerly known as Joint Juice Inc., alleging violations of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered damages from purchasing a falsely advertised product.

She is represented by Timothy G. Blood, Leslie E. Hurst and Thomas J.
