Kristensen Wins Significant Motion to Remand in DMAA Case against Nutrex and Vitamin Shoppe

Kristensen LLP won a significant ruling on December 15, 2015 in the United States District Court, District of New Jersey.  On March 25, 2015, Kristensen, LLP along with the law firms Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, McCartney & Giuffra LLP, and the Gansen Law Group PC, have filed a complaint and demand for a jury trial in the Superior Court of New Jersey Law on behalf of their client, Alfred Westermajer, alleging that General Nutrition Centers (GNC),, Vitamin ShoppeDPS Nutrition and Nutrex continued to market and sell “Hemo Rage” and “Lipo-6,” dietary supplements which contained an amphetamine derivative drug dimethylamylamine (DMAA), claiming it was safe and natural despite being warned by the FDA that DMAA was in fact dangerous. The complaint alleges that Westermajer suffered neurological and physical damage as a result. In October 2015, General Nutrition Centers (GNC),, Vitamin ShoppeDPS Nutrition and Nutrex filed a frivolous removal of the matter from Hudson County Superior Court in New Jersey to the Federal Court in New Jersey.  The firms promptly prepared and filed a motion to remand. On December 15, 2015, Hon. William H. Walls granted the motion to remand finding that Vitamin Shoppe was not fraudulently joined. The result was predictable. Kristensen LLP fight all frivolous defenses to make sure our clients get their days in Court. If you’ve been injured by DMAA other other adulterated supplements call our office for a consultation.
