What is this case about?

A class action lawsuit was brought on behalf of Herbalife distributors who purchased tickets for two or more U.S.-based Herbalife Events (including Extravaganza, Leadership Development Weekend (LDW), Future President’s Team Retreat, Kickoff, Spectacular(s), January Kickoff (JKO), January Spectacular, Herbalife Honors, African American Recruiting Tour, Herbalife Summit, Building Your Business Workshop, Future Millionaire Team Event (FMTE), RSM LA Experience, Galaxy Rally, Success Training Seminar (STS), Herbalife Opportunity Meeting (HOM), Scale to Success, and any Latin market equivalent of these events, including, but not limited to, FSL, Fin de Semana de Liderazgo, Mega Escuela, Latin Recruit Tours, Latin Market Extravaganza, Latin Market LDW, and Latin Market Future President’s Team Retreat).

The Court has not decided who is right.
