Documents are filed in L.A. Superior Court claiming the Jillian Michaels Maximum Strength Calorie Control dietary supplements are “worthless.” The suit asks for an injunction prohibiting the sale of the product, plus damages.
Sadly, Michaels has decided to exploit her fame and goodwill by collaborating with Thin Care and Basic Research to promote a weight loss supplement that purportedly will cause weight loss by itself, without any additional effort on the part of the consumer.
Michaels releases the following statement in response:
Unfortunately, anyone can file a lawsuit in California. All it takes is a $355 filing fee. That research was reviewed by some of the leading weight-loss experts in the world before Jillian would put her name on the product. The lawsuit will be handled in the courts like all other lawsuits, and we are confident we will prevail.
