For the most part, consumers pretty much expect products they purchase to live up to their marketing claims. When such a product fails to do so, things can go south (like south pole south) VERY quickly. An example of the kind of escalation that can occur when consumers believe a product falls short of its marketing claims is the recently settled lawsuit titled Robbins v Gencor Nutrients, Inc. The suit was filed over allegations that clinical studies do not support the marketing claims made by the Defendant on its products containing the ingredient Testofen. However, the Defendant clearly sees things differently, and as such has denied any wrongdoing of any kinda and admits ZERO liability. Which party would have prevailed in court is anyone’s guess at this point as it seems the case will soon be resolved for a total settlement amount not to exceed $7,000,000. The process of filing an online claim cane be initiated by going to the Robbins Settlement page and clicking the Submit Claim tab.
So what should I know before I file a claim??

- The deadline by which claims must be filed (online or by mail) is September 28th, 2018
- July 30th, 2018 is the deadline for all requests to be excluded as well as objections

After clicking the Submit Claim tab a Class Member ID can be entered to begin the online filing process. Those without a Class Member ID can click the provided link to register and have one sent by email. Those who plan on sending the completed claim form by mail should make sure that it’s post-marked no later than the September 29th, 2018 filing deadline and sent directly to the Settlement Administrator. The Settlement Administrator is also a good resource for questions regarding the lawsuit. Those who would rather find their own answers (an incredibly noble pursuit!) can attempt to do so by reviewing the information found under the FAQs section of the Robbins Settlement page.
