In this issue: “All Natural” Ice Cream Suit Can Proceed, Court Rules; For One Model, Age Is Not Just a Number – It’s a Cause of Action; $10.4M to the FTC For Work-at-Home, Government Grant Scams; and Lawmakers Introduce Geolocation Bill.

Exceprt from 'All Natural” Ice Cream Suit...':

In another case addressing the use of the term “natural,” a U.S. District Court in California denied ice cream maker Ben & Jerry’s motion to dismiss a suit in which plaintiffs alleged that the phrase “All Natural” on ice cream and frozen yogurt packaging was false and deceptive.

The California-based plaintiffs specifically claimed that the products contained alkalized cocoa, which is processed with man-made potassium carbonate and therefore the “All Natural” labels violated California’s unfair and deceptive business practice laws.
