Neora’s bid to dismiss the FTC’s pyramid scheme case against it has been rejected. The company did however manage to get the case moved to Texas.
Almost a year ago to the day, Mark and Tammy Smith’s lawsuit against Neora was ordered into arbitration. The decision was appealed but I believe ultimately Neora prevailed in getting arbitration held in Texas. On June 1st 2020, The Smiths filed a voluntary notice of dismissal.
Neora has moved to dismiss the FTC’s pyramid scheme lawsuit against it. The company argues the FTC’s lawsuit should be dismissed, owing to it filing a “duplicative” lawsuit first in Illinois. In the alternative, Neora wants the FTC’s New Jersey lawsuit moved to Illinois or Texas.
An FTC investigation has revealed less than 1% of commissions paid out by Neora were tied to retail sales. Rather than admit the company operated as a pyramid scheme, Neora is suing the FTC.
The FTC has filed a lawsuit against the MLM company Neora (formerly Nerium), and owner Jeff Olson. According to the FTC, Neora has operated as a pyramid scheme since inception as Nerium International in 2011.
Counterclaims filed by Nerium against co-founder Dennis Windsor have been settled via an agreed injunction.
Nerium Biotech has withdrawn its false advertising lawsuit against Neora.
