Quick Weight Loss Centers Weight-Loss Programs

In May 2014, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Quick Weight Loss Centers for allegedly falsely advertising its QWLC program. Among other things, plaintiffs claim that the company guarantees consumers who pay the fee to enroll in the program will lose weight, when, according to the complaint, they also need to purchase expensive supplements for the program to work.

The next day, a federal judge dismissed the case without prejudice finding that the Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction.(Viau et al v. Quick Weight Loss Centers, Inc., Case No. 14-cv-61254, S. D. FL.).
