CLASS ACTION AGAINST BOIRON THROWN OUT

13th March 2015
 
After almost three years of legal wrangling, the class action suit instigated by the anti-homeopathy organization Centre for Inquiry (CFI) against Boiron Canada in Quebec has been dismissed. Another similar suit in Ontario is still in process, but its chances of succeeding now seem much more remote.

Boiron, Canada's largest manufacturer of homeopathic medicines, was served with papers in April of 2012 after Adanna Charles of West Montreal and her son took doses of Boiron's Oscillo products for flu and allegedly noticed no relief. According to her story, she decided to launch the suit after learning via the Internet that Boiron had settled a US class action suit earlier, and a friend recommended a class-action lawyer.

But CFI at first made no secret of its heavy involvement with the lawsuit, sending out a press release which it later removed from its Canadian website, and sending out calls for people to join the class action. (See here for an article on its American website.)
