Yale Tuition During Covid-19

"While the effects of the COVID-19 crisis are shared by all individuals and institutions across the country, Defendant has failed to apportion the burden in an equitable manner or consistent with its obligations as an educational institution. ...

Robocall Spoofing

"They know when these unlawful spoofed robocalls are being placed through their systems, which effectively 'light up' when the spoofer generates enormous numbers of calls, all displaying an obviously false caller ID number."

Northwestern Tuition During Covid-19

"Some Spring 2020 Quarter classes were canceled, all or substantially all Spring 2020 Quarter classes were held exclusively online, and all undergraduate classes were graded on a pass/fail basis without student consent. Nonetheless, Northwestern has retained all tuition, fees, and related payments for these classes and plans to do so for similar online classes in the coming quarters."

Whole Foods 365

Whole Foods 365

"Seeking to capture the growing hypoallergenic market, WF prominently labels many of its products as “hypoallergenic.” ... However, despite its marketing scheme, WF’s products are chock-full of known skin sensitizers (allergens), agents that cause serious skin damage, chemicals that cause serious eye damage lasting longer than 21 days, skin irritants, and eye irritants. Even more, WF’s products also contain known carcinogens, mutagens, reproductive toxins ..."

Almay

Almay

"In fact, given the quantity of skin sensitizers [substances known to cause an allergic response to enough people even at very low concentrations, e.g., ≤ 500 μg/cm2] in Almay’s products, under federal regulations, all Almay’s Falsely Labeled Products must contain a warning that the product itself is a skin sensitizer...."

Johnson & Johnson

Johnson & Johnson

"For example, J&J labels its popular Head-To-Toe Baby Wash as hypoallergenic, despite the fact that the product contains a smorgasbord of known skin sensitizers. Other than water, the highest ingredient by volume is cocamidopropyl betaine, which was named the Allergen of the Year in 2004 by the American Contact Dermatitis Society. The second highest ingredient by volume is PEG-80 sorbitan laurate, a Category 1 skin sensitizer – the highest categorization given to allergens...."

"Unfortunately for consumers, the Products are not “100% natural.” For one, the Products are derived from unnatural, genetically modified plants (a/k/a genetically modified organisms or “GMOs”). Recent GMO testing of Nature Valley 100% NATURAL Crunchy Oats ‘n Honey Granola Bars by an independent lab demonstrates that the product contained GMOs, including viral and bacterial genes. See Exhibit 3 (lab results . . ."

"For example, Kashi’s so-called “All Natural” GoLean Shakes are composed almost entirely of synthetic and unnaturally processed ingredients, including sodium molybdate, phytonadione, sodium selenite, magnesium phosphate, niacinamide, calcium carbonate, calcium phosphate, calcium pantothenate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, thiamin hydrochloride, potassium iodide, and other substances that have been declared to be synthetic substances by federal regulations."

The Honest Co.

The Honest Co.

"For example, lurking inside the “kid-friendly” and seemingly mom-worthy “plant- based” Laundry Detergent that “softens naturally” and contains “no harsh chemicals (ever!)” is a chemical cocktail of synthetic ingredients. In fact, out of the seven ingredients, more than two- thirds (five) are synthetic, and more than two-thirds are “harsh,” if not downright toxic."

Barbara's Bakery - Puffins

Barbara's Bakery - Puffins

"Unfortunately for consumers and their children, Puffins is not 'All Natural' or '100% natural.' Rather, the Products contain various synthetic ingredients and corn that is derived from unnatural, genetically modified plants (a/k/a genetically modified organisms, or “GMOs”)."

Naked Juice

Naked Juice

"For example, Defendants label Blue Machine as an all-natural blueberry and blackberry 100% Juice Smoothie. . . . Yet there is more Fibersol-2 (a proprietary synthetic digestion-resistant fiber) than any ingredient even derived from blackberries."
