Enhanced Athlete Defeats Nutrition Distribution Lawsuit

Enhance Athletes, a Body-Building and Fitness Supplements

Company based in Wyoming, defeated a lawsuit filed by Nutrition Distribution. In July 2017, Nutrition Distribution filed a lawsuit against Enhanced Athletes (Nutrition Distribution, LLC v. Enhanced Athlete, Inc. et al.

– E.D. Cal., Case N. 2:17-cv-2069-JAM-CKD), claiming Enhanced Athletes adversely effected their sales through false advertising. Enhanced Athletes claimed the lawsuit was nothing more than a shake down scheme.

In a press release statement, CEO of Enhanced Athletes, Scott Cavell, says, “Enhanced Athlete is not going to be the next victim of Nutrition Distribution’s shakedown scheme. So long as supplement companies continue to pay these nuisance value settlements, Nutrition Distribution will continue with its business model of shakedown lawsuits.”

According to Enhanced Athletes, the alleged scheme is to threaten companies with lawsuits in the hopes of settling outside of court. Other companies, according to Enhanced Athletes, have buckled under the threat and settled to avoid costly legal fees.

The California Eastern District Court ruled in favor of Enhanced Athlete over Nutrition Distribution. Since Nutrition Distribution claimed their sales were adversely affected by Enhanced Athlete’s promotional techniques, a clear connection between the loss of sales and Enhanced Athlete’s advertising agenda needed to be established. The Eastern District Court claimed Nutrition Distribution failed to demonstrate this causal relationship between Enhanced Athlete’s advertisement of products and Nutrition Distribution’s recent lack of sales. Since the causal relationship was not established, the case against Enhanced Athletes was tossed out.
