A class action settlement over the brain health supplement Neuriva was nearing final approval when objector Ted Frank stepped in, calling a proposed labeling change in the deal “nothing but worthless window dressing.”

Defendants Reckitt Benckiser LLC and RB Health (US) LLC fired back. This month, they brought a motion to strike Frank’s entire filing, as well as that of the organization Truth in Advertising Inc., which filed an amicus brief opposing the settlement. The motion alleges that Frank, who is serving as the objector in the case, rather than an objector’s lawyer, manufactured his standing as a class member by purchasing Neuriva once he knew about the settlement.
