Young Living

October 2019: A federal magistrate judge recommended that the district court deny the motions to compel arbitration concluding that, because the Arbitration Clause and the Forum Selection Clause conflicted, there was no “meeting of the minds” (a contract law doctrine requiring parties to agree to the same terms, conditions, and subject matter to form a contract) and, therefore, no binding arbitration agreement.

June 2019: Young Living and the three individual defendants filed motions to compel arbitration.

April 2019: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Young Living and three of its executives alleging that the MLM company is a pyramid scheme and that members are rewarded for recruiting others to join instead of selling essential oil products. The complaint further claims that the company promises that members will attain financial success when, according to the plaintiffs, 94% of members earn an average of $1 a month in commissions. (O’Shaughnessy et al v. Young Living Essential Oils et al, Case No. 19-cv-412, W. D. TX.)
