Friedman, et al. v. Guthy-Renker et al.Case No. 2:14-cv-06009-ODWDistrict Court for the Central District of California;
Plaintiffs filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Central District of California claiming that Guthy-Renker, LLC and WEN by Chaz Dean, Inc. (“Defendants”) designed, manufactured and sold WEN® Hair Care Products (“WEN®”) which allegedly cause certain users to suffer personal injury including hair loss, hair damage and and/or scalp irritation. Plaintiffs also asserted that statements made in connection with the marking of WEN® were untrue and misleading. Defendants vigorously deny these allegations and contend that there is no link between hair loss and WEN®.
The Court did not decide in favor of Plaintiffs or Defendants. Instead, both sides agreed to this Settlement. This way, both sides avoid the potential risks and cost of a trial
