WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (Legal Newsline) – A New York consumer alleges that she paid a premium for a brand of essential oils she alleges is falsely advertised as natural.
Precious Williams filed a complaint individually and on behalf of other similarly situated individuals on May 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Epic Business Services Inc., doing business as Majestic Pure Cosmeceuticals, alleging violation of New York general business laws.
According to the complaint, the defendant sells essential oils and advertises the products as "100 percent pure and natural." The plaintiff alleges the oils actually contain "a spectacular array of artificial and synthetic chemicals."
The plaintiff holds Epic Business Services Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly misleadingly, inaccurately and deceptively presented its products to consumers.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, to certify the class action, appoint class representative and class counsel, injunctive relief, award costs and expenses of suit, attorney's fees and further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Michael J. Gabrielli of Gabrielli Levitt LLP in Bronx, New York.
