Have you been keeping track? So far, the LuLaRoe Lawsuits are at thirteen and counting….all of them can been seen here. That link includes all the lawsuits that have been flied along with links to the actual court documents.
The latest in the LuLaRoe lawsuits is a BIG step forward for retailers. This isn’t about copyright infringement, sales tax, defective leggings or from it’s previous credit card processor; THIS is about LuLaRoe being a pyramid scheme and rescinding the 100% buyback policy.
The lawsuit’s primary accusation is that LuLaRoe rescinded its buyback policy after it led consultants— including the named plaintiffs: Stella Lemberg, Jeni Laurence, Amandra Bluder, and Carissa Stuckart— to believe they could continue to buy clothing risk-free, given the 100 percent buyback guarantee. You can see the actual filing here along with all the other court filings here.
While I wish ill on no one, but LuLaRoe is getting its just desserts. For all the reasons I’ve mentioned in this blog and more, LuLaRoe deserves to finally be forced to take responsibility for their nefarious and criminal actions. They have forced retailers into bankruptcy, mentors have paid people to join their teams (considered “blessing lives”, but highly unethical). Let’s not forget breeding and encouraging “mean girls“, and not paying out approved fundraisers. I am not in the least bit disheartened that they are seeing their own demise.
But here’s the biggest caveat in this whole situation; LuLaRoe will not and does not see that they have done one thing wrong, or if they have, they will never admit it. EVER. Just keep drinking the Kool-Aid, “buy more to sell more” and “stay in your own lane” (translation: keep the blinders on and don’t look for and realize the truth).
One thing though – I hope that they stay liquid long enough to pay the retailers that are waiting on refunds, including me. I’m owed a HUGE chunk of change from them and do not need the aggravated hassle of having to take the legal route to get my money. Even though I have attorneys on board right now, ready and willing, I do not need that added stress nor does anyone else. Pay out your DAMN refunds and the owed fundraisers.
Tick tock, motherfuckers.
