An Alameda County judge has approved a $30 million settlement in a class action over a hair-loss remedy.
Alameda County Superior Court Judge Robert Freedman approved nearly $10 million in attorneys’ fees in his final approval order last week. The case pitted a class of California users of Avacor, which was marketed as an all-natural, clinically tested hair-loss fix, against two former officers of corporate defendant Global Vision Products.
The plaintiffs in Thomas v. Global Vision Products, RG03091195, were represented by Walnut Creek firm Bramson, Plutzik, Mahler & Birkhaeuser, as well as New York firms Faruqi & Faruqi and The Law Offices of Scott A. Bursor.
“It took more than seven years of scorched-earth litigation, two jury trials, and two of the largest class action verdicts on record to produce this settlement,” Bursor said in a press release on his website, which has video from the November 2009 trial.
