On Tuesday, Judge Carney found that the plaintiff, Min Sook Shin, still had not adequately alleged that Umeken was responsible for statements on an unaffiliated website, still had not substantiated her claims of fraud against a Umeken executive, and still had not alleged her own experience with Umeken’s products with adequate particularity. The Court has given Shin 30 days to file a second amended complaint on her remaining claims.
Umeken is represented by John Hueston.
