A lawsuit filed against a CBD company claiming it falsely labeled its products was dismissed in federal court. The plaintiff plans to refile the suit in a state court instead.
American Shaman CBD, the defendant in the case, faced allegations that their product wasn’t properly labeled and that it contained higher amounts of heavy metals than advertised. After strategizing with their legal counsel, the plaintiff moved to dismiss the case in federal court, which U.S. District Judge William Dimitrouleas did.
Daniel Desouza, the plaintiff’s counsel, plans on refiling the case in a Florida state court. They will still be seeking class-action status for the suit. The plaintiff believes that their case will be easier to prove in a different court. They still claim that despite advertisements on American Shaman’s packaging, third party testing showed that the company’s products contained contaminants like heavy metals and pesticides.
