WLF Legal Backgrounder
November 3, 2017
Special counsel Katie Bond and senior associate Glenn Graham co-authored the WLF Legal Backgrounder article “Regulators, Not Private Plaintiffs, Should Judge Substantiation for Consumer-Product Health Claims.” The article discusses the Nat’l Council Against Health Fraud, Inc. v. King Bio Pharm, Inc. case and reasons why State regulators should be the only ones allowed to bring false-advertising cases based on a lack of substantiation.
