January 2015: A federal judge refused to certify the class in this false advertising lawsuit because, among other things, the plaintiff did not present a way to identify class members, did not sufficiently explain how to apply the method of measuring damages to the facts of this case, and did not show that common questions would predominate.
March 2013: A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against ConAgra Foods, Inc. for allegedly deceptively labeling and marketing its Parkay Spray as having “0 fat” and “0 calories” when, according to plaintiffs, the spray, which contains 832 calories and 93 grams of fat per bottle, is neither fat free nor calorie free. (Allen et al v. ConAgra Foods, Inc., Case No. 13-cv-01279, N.D. Cal.).
