During the 2015 Convention held in Phoenix, AZ last week Darren Jensen, LifeVantage President and CEO, announced that Lazyman will no longer be a “distraction” for LifeVantage. In his announcement, he provided a slide of the legal proceeding, LifeVantage Corporation v. Brian C. MacFarland, from the Court of Appeals in the state of California. (San Mateo County Superior Court No. CIV521137). He also provided the following bullet points:
· “. . . Our statement of facts accepts as true the evidence favorable to LifeVantage.”
· “. . . the declarations LifeVantage submitted ‘adequately’ demonstrated that MacFarland published defamatory statements of fact about LifeVantage, and that LifeVantage suffered damages as a result of MacFarland’s statements.”
· “Thus, LifeVantage presented evidence that it does not encourage illegal or false claims by its distributors and in fact actually prohibits them.”
· “In light of Dr. McCord’s declaration, a reasonable trier of fact might conclude MacFarland’s statements were not substantially true and were defamatory.”
We appreciate the dedicated work and persistence of the legal department in seeing this matter through to its conclusion.
At LifeVantage curiosity has our attention, science has our back and we recognize–and firmly believe–that your growth is the way of our future.
