LOS ANGELES — A New Jersey man is suing a supplement manufacturer, alleging he was led to believe a supplement would help him lose weight.
Frank Capaci, on behalf of himself and others similarly situated, filed a class action complaint April 26 in U.S. District Court of the Central District of California against Sports Research Corporation, alleging false advertising, deceptive labeling, fraud, breach of express warranties, breach of implied warranties and negligent misrepresentation.
Capaci says he purchased Sports Research's Garcinia Cambogia, believing it would help him lose weight. The product allegedly helps support appetite control and weight management, but the suit states the product's active ingredients are not capable of providing any weight loss benefits.
Capaci seeks trial by jury, an order for the defendant to correct its campaign, disgorgement of profits, restitution of the price paid by the plaintiff, punitive damages, attorney fees, court costs and all just and proper relief. He is represented by attorneys Ronald A. Marron and Michael T. Houchin of the Law Offices of Ronald A. Marron in San Diego.
