A federal judge in Houston tossed out a lawsuit claiming that Amway distributors had spread false rumors linking Procter & Gamble with Satanic cults. The lawsuit was just one of many that P&G brought in the wake of longstanding whispers that its corporate logo was a symbol of Satanism. The suit against Amway claimed that distributors for the multi-level marketing outfit used voice mail to tell thousands of customers that some of P&G’s profits were diverted to devil-worshiping cults. In dismissing the suit, U.S. District Judge Vanessa Gilmore noted that a federal judge in Utah had thrown out a similar case in March after ruling that the rumors were not defamatory, and that P&G failed to make a case for specific damages.
