Reebok Class Action Settlement

The Federal Trade Commission didn’t like the way Reebok advertised a line of shoes and apparel that purportedly made you backside look like awesome sauce. The FTC said it’s testing didn’t prove the claims. Reebok disagrees, but decided to settle.

As a ethical issue, I’m kind of torn. Companies need to be honest about their products, but over-regulation hurts people trying to make a living (and provide jobs). And when you’re up against the government, even enormous companies — like Reebok — don’t have endless coffers to compete with taxpayer funded lawyering. I haven’t tried the product and can’t speak from experience, but Reebok’s agreement is to make the settlement known and I’ve agreed to help spread the word. So here it is.

If you purchased any of the Reebok products listed below, from December 5, 2008 through October 12, 2011, you may be eligible to payment from a class action settlement.

  • SimplyTone
  • EasyTone — Capri
  • EasyTonen — Shorts

    It is interesting to see this on this site. As a law clerk in my former life (before kids), I saw lot of class action suits. While they have their place, I never saw one that did not benefit the lawyers substantially more than a given consumer, or even class of consumers. It especially bothered me when I would see class action suits in which each member would receive a coupon rather than monetary reimbursement. (I mean, who wants to keep doing business with with a company you have sued?) Meanwhile, the lawyers are making $100 per hour on the case.

    Tracy, I agree. The suits are a racket. Regardless of who benefits, Reebok needs to get the word out and I need to pay the server fee. 🙂 Sponsored posts provide a little help.
