FDLI Food Advertising Labeling and Litigation Conference

September 29, 2022

500 8th Street NW
Washington, DC 20004

Partner Trent Taylor will be a featured panelist on the topic of “Evaluating the State of the ‘Reasonable Consumer’ Standard” at this year’s FDLI conference.

False advertising class action litigation often hinges on the reasonable consumer standard, which in many states requires “a probability that a significant portion of the general consuming public or of targeted consumers, acting reasonably in the circumstances, could be misled.” This panel will cover recent federal court rulings that applied the reasonable consumer standard, plus additional cases that were allowed to proceed without satisfying this test due to violations of state unfair competition statutes (most notably California’s Unfair Competition Law (UCL)). Panelists will then discuss the likely application of the reasonable consumer standard in pending and future cases.
