Target Immunity Supplement suit set for status conference in September
A class action suit over whether Target's Immunity Supplement, an "Airborne" like product, works is scheduled for a status conference in September.
As yet, Target, the defendant in the case, has yet to file a response to the plaintiff's June 24 motion for the entry of a briefing schedule for class certification.
The status conference is set for Sept. 14 at 9:30 a.m.
The complaint brought by lead plaintiff Brian Buehlhorn is similar to other suits pending in St. Clair County over other Airborne type products.
According to the complaint, Buehlhorn claims the Minnesota-based Target sells the product as a method of improving the immune system when it does not. Buehlhorn claims the supplements' packaging does not make reference to that fact and that the product's claims are false.
The suit seeks damages of not more than $75,000 per class member.
Target denies the suit's allegations.
St. Clair County Circuit Judge Patrick Young is presiding.
Buehlhorn is represented by Paul Weiss, Richard Burke and Kevin Hoerner.
Target is represented by Robert Bassett and others.
The case is St. Clair case number 08-L-583.
