more dumb lawsuits!

http://www.cnn.com/2005/LAW/10/04/dr.phil/index.html


its funny because i bet the people only took the pills and tought the would lose weight!..lol



Dr. Phill didnt make any one use the "diet" so why should he pay.... ok if the "diet" didnt work they should get their money back, but thats it!!! why are people always seeking damages!

damages from what????? tht you are dumb and listen to what ever you are told...lol


if i was the judge i would tell these people to shut it and find a hobby, i would not return them any money also for making this a big deal......


whats wrong with people today!

Re: more dumb lawsuits!

Without actually seeing the complaint, how can you say it's dumb?* You don't know a damn thing about the suit, other than what's in the article.

Does anyone else find it funny that all the ads on the page are for Dr. Phil's diet plan?

Here's another one...Dr. Phil is apparantly doing a show on frivolous lawsuits!

lol i knew you would post quick, and you are right im just going by what cnn said.


but i havent seen anything else about this, and from what i saw in that article, it just doesnt look like a right reason to sue


i understand asking for a refund, but why damages?...lol


and im sure those ads are like the ones in the botton of this forums screen, they link to key words use in the article

Re: more dumb lawsuits!

Until you can read the complaint, you won't know why they're seeking damages. Yeah, it could be that they're just upset that they spent money on pills and they're still fat. But they could also have suffered some kind of serious, emotional, or financial injuries because of it. I'm anxious to see why they want extra money.

Re: more dumb lawsuits!

Why would anybody take diet advice form Dr.Phil. The guy's fat. He said try it, they did under their own power and it didn't work. If the plan suggests exercise and they only took pills (at one peron) then forget it. The only thing I see can save these ppl is if the plan guaranteed weight loss. Even then, they need to show they followed the prescribed plan and exercised regularly...

Ppl NEED to find hobbies. Hobbies that are outdoors and require physical activiy. Have fun and lose weight. Save your money.

Re: more dumb lawsuits!

from doing some more reading it appears that the packaging on the pills made claims that were found to not be true and that the plan made unsubstantiated claims of the effectiveness of the supplements. The FTC is investigating for false advertising, which is probably what spawned the suits.

yeah you are right!

but im sure that if anyone got hurt, they would have said something in that article....people getting hurt normaly = better reading, better story.


and yes i dont know what the bottle said as far as how much weigh you can lose with these, but come on.... there is no magic pill that makes you lose weight, you have to work for it......

if it was because of what the bottle said, then i dont think people should look for damages, if someone did get hurt, sick etc. then yes, but the article didnt say anything about anyone getting hurt....

and since someone getting hurt would make a better, sronger story, i dont think someone did get hurt.


im not saying that there is no chance that someone got hurt from it just because its not in the story, but i havent seen anything else, so right now im going with that article.
