Federal judge dismisses false advertising suit against Newark-based weight loss company GOLO

GOLO marks the opening of a Wilmington warehouse.

A federal judge in California judge issued a nine-page decision granting GOLO’s motion to dismiss a false advertising class action lawsuit filed against the Newark-based company in 2021.

The dismissal came early in its procedural status and reflects GOLO’s consistent view that the lawsuit was without merit, a company release stated.

“We are very pleased with this result and the court’s decision here,” said Chris Lundin, GOLO’s CEO. “GOLO has always been and remains committed to providing our customers with safe, effective, and sustainable solutions to their health, wellness, and weight loss needs.”

GOLO advertises heavily on cable channels with testimonials from customers.

“There has been some misleading information online about this case, and the court’s ruling for GOLO should provide clarity to the record,” stated Keith Walter, GOLO’s General Counsel. “This decision also validates GOLO’s position from the outset that this class action lawsuit should have never been filed, and I am glad to see it concluded with the Judge applying recent Ninth Circuit precedent.”


GOLO has provided health and wellness solutions since 2013 and has more than four million customers. GOLO has distribution centers in Wilmington Las Vegas, Nevada, and Dallas. The company employs 130.

GOLO’s flagship products are the GOLO for Life Plan, a servings-based heating program, and the Release dietary supplement.
