Hinkle, et al. v. Sports Research Corporation
Superior Court of California, County of San Diego, North County Division
Case No. 37-2020-00001422-CU-NP-NC

 

ATTENTION ALL PERSONS WHO PURCHASED SPORTS RESEARCH CORPORATION’S PREMIUM MCT OIL OR TURMERIC CURCUMIN C3 PRODUCTS IN THE UNITED STATES


A proposed Settlement has been reached between Sports Research Corporation (“Defendant”) and Mark Hinkle and Daniel Rossi (the “Plaintiffs”), individually and on behalf of a Settlement Class. The settlement resolves a class action lawsuit about allegations that Defendant violated California state law by making false, deceptive, and/or misleading claims on the labeling and packaging of their Premium MCT Oil and Turmeric Curcumin C3 Complex products with particular labels (the “Covered Products”). A description of the Covered Products may be found by clicking here.

You may be eligible to receive a settlement award if you purchased one or more of the Covered Products, for personal use, and not resale or distribution, in the United States between January 9, 2016 and January 9, 2020.


Background of the Litigation

On January 9, 2020, Plaintiffs filed a lawsuit (the “Lawsuit”) on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated alleging that Defendant violated California state law by improperly representing that the Covered Products contained healthy fats, were antibacterial, anti-microbial, and had anti-viral properties. Furthermore, the Covered Products claimed that they were “packed with beneficial fats,” and had sustained “natural” energy. Plaintiffs do not claim that the Covered Products caused anyone physical injury or harm.

Defendant denies the allegations in the Lawsuit and believes that it has valid defenses to the allegations. The Court has not decided that Defendant did anything wrong, and the Settlement does not mean Defendant broke the law. Both the Plaintiffs and Defendant believe that the Settlement is fair, adequate, and reasonable and that it is in the best interests of the Settlement Class.

The Parties have reached an agreement to the Settlement, which is subject to final approval by the Court.  The Final Approval Hearing will be held on March 26, 2021 at 1:30 p.m, at the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego, North County Division – 325 S. Melrose Drive, Department 31, Vista, CA 92081, before the Honorable Timothy M. Casserly.
