This was a case brought by the Federal Trade Commission claiming that Wellman & Warren’s multi-level-marketing client was operating an illegal pyramid scheme and making improper representations to distributors. The case was resolved in favor of the multi-level-marketing client, allowing the client to continue its business operations. By contrast, in a companion case, FTC v. Skybus, (in which Wellman & Warren did not represent the multi-level-marketing company), a company in a similar position was forced to cease operations.
