Proctor & Gamble Wins Case Against Amway Distributors In Federal Court
CINCINNATI - The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE: PG) today announced that it won a jury trial on March 16 in Federal District Court in Salt Lake City, Utah, against four Amway distributors for spreading false rumors about the company to advance their own business. P&G was awarded $19.25 million.
“This is about protecting our reputation,” said Jim Johnson, P&G’s Chief Legal Officer. “We will take appropriate legal measures when competitors unfairly undermine the reputation of our brands or our company.”
In related moves last year, P&G took legal action against several companies for infringement of trade dress and trademarks, as well as false advertising, relating to P&G brands in the feminine care, oral care and beauty care businesses.
