Morrison was part of a class action lawsuit against YTB and its related entities, claiming that the company was an unlawful pyramid scheme and seeking $100 million in damages. They claimed damages under the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Practices Act (ICFA). Morrison and the other class members bought into YTB's MLM online travel business. YTB moved to dismiss the claim because the class members were not Illinois residents.
