A federal court in New Jersey has rejected the claims of objectors questioning class notice and most of the settlement terms in a deal which resolves allegations that Ferrero USA, Inc., the company that makes the hazelnut spread Nutella®, misled consumers about the nutritive value of its product; while the court entered an order finally approving the settlement, it did reduce counsel fees by $1.25 million. In re Nutella Mktg. & Sales Practices Litig., No. 11-1086(FLW)(DEA) (U.S. Dist. Ct., D.N.J., decided July 31, 2012). Additional information about the objectors’ challenge appears in Issue 444 of this Update. Counsel had sought $3.75 million fees, an amount the objectors claimed was unwarranted. According to the court, the reduced fees represent 25 percent of the value of the gross settlement fund, injunctive relief, costs and the incentive award to the class representatives.
