Class action against Amway Canada
#11
here's the decision throwing out the plaintiffs motion to dismiss Amway's motion to dismiss the case as the court didn't have jurisdiction as it should go to arbitration -

Here's the list of court entries -

I'm guessing this is being driven by PSA, probably originally via Scheibeler.

I doubt this lawsuit was Scheibeler's doing.

He could have written a better complaint than the Plaintiffs. He is better acquainted with these things than you or I.

I think anyone on this forum could have done better writing the complaint.

I recall Scheibeler taking some credit for being involved in this, I think in one of his email mail outs. My guess is it went something like this - these distributors read MOD, decided to contact Scheibeler, Scheibeler referred them to PSA, where he and FitzPatrick are Directors and Craig is an advisor, and then the plaintiffs and PSA hooked up with Trude & Johnston in Canada, who appear to specialise in class actions.

In other words, the lawyers education about Amway came from PSA, who are clueless, and a pair of first year IBOs.

And this is their specialty? lol

What areas of law are NOT considered their specialty?

Jeez. Show me a REAL loss. Many people, especially those steeped the heavy handed AMO-BSM culture, have several thousand dollar losses each year per person.


I agree - accepted figure was an investment of 10 - 15k a year in our LOA. You only broke even when you went platinum.

Apparently not enough to learn how it runs??

Just a quick update. Been busy with life but looked in to this case again and the plaintiffs "lost" their case and it was sent to arbitration. Amway was awarded costs.

Interestingly by the time of the hearing the "class" had only 1 member. And get this - the plaintiff (Kerry Rhodes, his wife Cheryl dropped out of the case for some reason. More speculation on that later) was an IBO *four times*

A bit difficult to argue you didn't know about some aspect of a contract when you've signed it four different times.

They have appealed.
