The FTC’s “More Specific” Order Provisions Five Years Later
FDLI Update
September/October 2014

Partner John Villafranco and associate Katie Bond authored the FDLI Update article "The FTC's "More Specific" Order Provisions Five Years Later." The article examines where the Federal Trade Commission's provisions stand after a 2009 decision that a dietary supplement company was not liable for violating an order requiring competent and reliable scientific evidence. John and Katie trace changes since the FTC's decision to revise the standard order language to be more specific and analyze the current state of the provisions.
