Trudeau sues again

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Supplement marketer and author Kevin Trudeau is suing the New York Consumer Protection Board in response to the group's Aug. 5 consumer warning that Trudeau's book, Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About, and related infomercials are "exploiting and misleading."

He says a federal judge determined in 2005 that CPB had violated his First Amendment rights. Trudeau also sued FTC in March for a press release which stated he was barred from infomercials (2"The Tan Sheet" March 28, 2005, p. 12)...
