In November 2016, a false advertising class-action lawsuit
was filed against PhD Fitness for allegedly misleadingly advertising the characteristics and benefits of Pre-JYM and Post-JYM sport supplements. According to the complaint, the company markets the supplements as being scientifically supported and dosed properly to provide various benefits – including muscle endurance, muscle growth, strength, post-workout repair, and recovery – when such claims are not true. The lawsuit was voluntarily dismissed
later the same month. The reasons for the dismissal have not been disclosed. (Kirchoff et al v. PhD Fitness, LLC
, Case No. 16-cv-8310, C. D. CA.)
