In a tentative ruling, a California federal court has reportedly certified a class of purchasers of Nature Made TripleFlex glucosamine supplements; they allege that the product fails to provide advertised joint-health benefits. Barrera v. Pharmavite LLC, No. 11-4153 (U.S. Dist. Ct., C.D. Cal., tentative ruling given November 6, 2014). The court found “some classwide basis of proof” despite being “dubious about some of the merits of plaintiffs’ case.” The judge also invited the parties to confer and stipulate whether she should be removed from the case because she had seen moderate improvement after taking a different glucosamine supplement at the recommendation of her doctor for some joint inflammation in her hand.
