The Direct Selling Association (DSA) released a statement regarding Neora’s lengthy battle with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The trade association applauded Neora’s strong compliance efforts and reported that it filed two amicus briefs during the case to remind the courts of the legal standard to follow.
Neora’s ultimate landmark victory, during which the courts rejected all of the FTC’s claims, is a reminder of the importance of clear legal standards.
“We hope yesterday’s decision in the Neora case will help provide clarity about the direct selling business model to regulators, consumers, and the public,” said Joseph N. Mariano, DSA President and CEO. “The court cited the company’s robust inventory repurchase agreement and strong compliance efforts that all DSA members abide by. The decision reinforces the importance of these principles as core tenets of consumer protection and Neora’s adherence to them as part of their membership in the association.”
