Class-Action Tracker

Here in our Class-Action Tracker (CAT) section, you can find information about false or deceptive advertising class-action lawsuits filed around the country. For each case, we highlight the allegations in the complaint, as well as the status of the case. We also link to relevant settlement pages when possible. Please note that our list is not comprehensive and does not reflect TINA.org’s opinion with respect to the lawsuits or disposition of the cases. (Additional disclaimer: Sometimes we get behind due to the huge number of class actions pending in the U.S. so the information may not always be up-to-date.)
