Title

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

Docket number: 
No. 12-md-2320 (D.N.H.)
Case status: 
Court level: 

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.
