In December 2013, a federal judge transferred a class-action lawsuit
against Alterna Holdings Corp from federal court back to state court because the company did not establish that the amount in controversy was more than $5,000, as required to have the case in a federal court. The complaint
, which was originally filed in state court in 2013, alleges that the company advertises Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Shampoo as providing “anti-aging” benefits – such as restoring and rebalancing moisture and revitalizing brittle hair – when, in reality, the shampoo does not work as advertised. (Kenney et al v. Alterna Holdings Corp., et al
, Case No. 13-cv-09014, C. D. CA.).
