A federal court in Massachusetts has denied the motion to stay filed by the defendants in litigation alleging that the companies mislead consumers by claiming that the undergarments they make use a caffeine- and nutrient-infused fabric that destroys fat. Bellot v. Maidenform Brands, LLC, No. 14-11834 (U.S. Dist. Ct., D. Mass., order entered June 23, 2014). Additional details about the complaint appear in Issue 24 of this Report. The order was without prejudice, however, given the court’s allowance of defendants’ requests to extend the time to file an answer until August 29, 2014. The defendants had cited a “proliferation of copycat complaints” in their stay requests and indicated that the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation was scheduled to consider their motion to consolidate the cases on July 31.
