Predatory Marketing of Hand Wipes In Low Income Nabes Yields $3 Apiece, Fees in Notice

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 10 – Kari Proskin, on behalf of a class of all others similarly situated, sued  Tzumi Innovations LLC for predatory marketing to low income consumers as antibacterial products a series of hand wipes.

  On January 10, 2023 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jed S. Rakoff held a proceeding, after a day presiding over the adidas v. Thom Browne jury trial. Inner City Press covered both.

   The wipes class action was proposing to settle, after a mediation by a former judge whom all described as respected.

Still, Judge Rakoff wanted to know, how was $2 million arrived at? And why was class counsel taking one-third?  

 Plaintiffs' lawyer said the $3 apiece compensation was generous, but agreed to include in the notice a disclosure of the fees, so that anyone could object.

She added that the notice will also include a description of all the firm's work. 

 The case is Proskin v. Tzumi Innovations LLC, 22-cv-5919 (Rakoff)
