Colgate-Palmolive Softsoap Antibacterial Hand Soap Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation


In this action, Plaintiffs allege that defendant falsely marketed an ingredient in its antibacterial soap as eliminating 99% of germs.

CCAF objected to the settlement that would pay class counsel $2 million and would leave the class members with nothing but valueless labeling changes on a product defendant was no longer selling. The objection was overruled. CCAF noticed appeal concerning cy pres payments to non-class members, but dismissed the appeal when this became moot.
