Judge Approves $15 Million Herbalife Settlement

A Los Angeles federal judge signed off on a $15 million settlement of a class-action lawsuit brought by a former Herbalife Ltd. salesman who alleged the Los Angeles-based nutrition company was operating a pyramid scheme that victimized hundreds of thousands of people a year. The lawsuit, filed two years ago, alleged that Herbalife is a pyramid scheme in which the company's independent distributors earn more money recruiting new sales people than they do selling its products, an allegation Herbalife has repeatedly and vigorously denied. Under the settlement terms, Herbalife will set aside $15 million to compensate distributors who claimed losses in the business. The accord also requires the company to provide up to $2.5 million to distributors who return unused products. Herbalife has additionally agreed to abide by a number of corporate reforms for three years. The judge also approved an award of $5 million in attorneys' fees to plaintiffs' counsel -- representing nearly 30% of the gross settlement fund.
