Class Action Lawsuits Against Acomplia is the rage in the weight loss and diet supplement industry. It seems that when a product fails to live up to the quality and promises made by the manufacturer or distributor that they have to file a class action lawsuit in Federal Court to recoup their losses. The Federal Court is where a class action lawsuit must be filed in order to recover damages.
In Class Action Lawsuits Against Acomplia, plaintiffs who believe they were victims of deception by Acomplia distributors will need to join the lawsuit via an “amicus” or class-action representative. The “amicus” is represented by his attorney, usually a former Acomplia distributor or a current one. These representatives attend the manufacturer’s confidential meetings in an attempt to collect information about Acomplia, and attempt to convince the manufacturer to settle the claims against Acomplia. This information goes back to the original Acomplia distributor, who likely arranged for the confidential meetings, and makes contact with the trustee to collect money from the debtor. If the trustee agrees to partner with the manufacturers, both parties win.
If the claims in Class Action Lawsuits Against Acomplia are true, Acomplia distributed anabolic steroids into the hands of the Acomplia distributors. Acomplia plans to use these steroids, in combination with a meal plan designed by Acomplia’s diet consultant, to force the debtor into bankruptcy. The plan includes the use of laxatives, in an effort to make the debtor feel less “stretchy”. If this happens, it is not hard to see how the product could be abandoned by the debtor, without the company ever knowing.
There may be some money held by Acomplia (the manufacturer) that can be recovered if the claims against Acomplia are upheld in court. However, there are also many thousands of dollars in potential assets that the trustee will be required to sell in order to pay off the debts of Acomplia distributors, which may further delay the sale of Acomplia by the trustee. Some claim that the delay in selling Acomplia has been caused by Acomplia distributors refusing to sell their products. If these distributors do not sell the product, then no money will be recovered! Thus, this class action lawsuit against Acomplia is being pursued in hopes of forcing Acomplia to sell its weight-loss drug and collect the proceeds.
This class action lawsuit was initiated by a former employee of Acomplia, who is addicted to the weight loss drug, and claims to have been subjected to repeated abuses at the hands of the company. The complaint further claims that drug companies like Acomplia, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), and AstraZeneca (ALTA) did nothing to help this employee recover from her compulsive behavior, or warn her about the danger of Acomplia if she continued to use the drug. In fact, the lawsuit further claims that the drug companies “purposely” created a risk for this employee because Acomplia was not approved by the FDA. It is also claimed that the companies failed to train Acomplia about the dangers of compulsive behavior, as well as how to treat it, and did nothing to make sure that Acomplia was distributed properly, or to inform employees of the potential hazards of Acomplia.
One of the main issues with this class action lawsuit is that it is being brought by an employee who was subjected to dangerous acts at the hands of Acomplia distributors, and who is seeking damages for her injuries and mental suffering as a result. In addition, there are strong indications that the distributor may have been subject to unlawful conduct as a result of her employment with Acomplia, including possible attempts to recruit other distributors, obtain medical prescriptions in exchange for money, and obtain other employees as affiliates of Acomplia, all of which could constitute a valid claim for wrongful compensation. If the allegations are true, and the actions of Acomplia are proven, this lawsuit may represent a major victory for elderly patients who suffer from psychological problems brought on by living with chronic pain and side effects from prescription medications. Acomplia is currently one of the most popular prescription medications available over-the-counter, but its addictive nature has placed many seniors in a very vulnerable position.
