Njoy, Njoy Kings, and OneJoy E-Cigarettes
August 2015: A federal judge denied class certification in a false advertising class-action lawsuit filed against NJOY, Inc. and Sottera, Inc. finding that plaintiffs did not demonstrate that damages can be calculated on a class-wide basis. The June 2015 complaint (which consolidated two lawsuits) alleges that the companies misleadingly market electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) – including NJOY, NPRO, OneJoy, and NJOY Kings – as being safer than traditional tobacco cigarettes and generally safe when, in reality, they are not. (In Re NJOY, Inc. Consumer Class Action Litigation, Case No. 14-cv-428, C. D. CA.)
