Target class action inactive at St. Clair County

By Amelia Flood | May 11, 2011

There has been no action in a proposed multi-state class action against Target Corporation since the retailer asked to change attorneys in December 2010, according to the suit's case file.

Target filed its motion seeking to substitute attorney Robert Shultz for attorney Robert Bassett.

That motion was filed Dec. 10.

Target is fighting one of a series of class actions filed in 2008 over the effectiveness of generic forms of the immune system supplement Airborne.

The same team of attorneys – Paul Weiss, Richard Burke, and Kevin Hoerner – filed the suits against Target, CVS Pharmacies Inc., and other retailers.

At least one of those suits has ended while others remain ongoing in St. Clair County courtrooms.

The Target suit, led by lead plaintiff Brian Buehlhorn, seeks to include a class of customers who bought Target's version of Airborne from Illinois, Minnesota, and other states.

It has not been certified to date.

Target denies the suit's claims.

The December substitution motion does not specify a reason for Target's change in counsel. Bassett, however, also represents CVS in the immune supplement class action it faces.

The case is St. Clair case number 08-L-667.
