More details from here:
The Court found in favor of the plaintiffs on all points.
We have a judgement based on fraud for $1.8 Million.
We have punitive damages for $500,000
We have injunctive relief, which includes she can not further lie to promote her diet. She can not use fake photos, success stories or testimonials to promote her diet.
While we won't see a court ordered 404 message we got something even better.
Heidi must put a notice on ANY website she starts for any purpose, diet or otherwise, that explains that she lied, used fake success stories and testimonials, that she mislead, that she used deceptive practices. She is going to have to post a notice that explains that low calorie diets can be dangerous, with a list of possible adverse side effects (the wording of the notice is to be worked out between the lawyers and the judge). There is NO expiration of these notices.
The Judge included a PERMANENT restraining order wherein Heidi (or any of her socks) are prohibited against contacting in ANY form with any/all class members, class plaintiffs, lawyers, their families, their staffs (which includes me, Laura) for the rest of our lives.
Oh, all of her assets have been frozen until the judgement is entered and served.
This may be appealed, of course, but today, WE WON!!!!!
Just heard Heidi Diaz / Kimkins has been found GUILTY! Details to come!
The trial has been going on all week and is expected to conclude any minute. It's hard to believe this day is finally here!
