You may be wondering why I have removed certain statements concerning LifeVantage from this website. As you may know, LifeVantage sued me to remove certain statements from my website. I defended against the lawsuit by filing what is known as an anti-SLAPP motion, which, if it had been successful, would have caused the case to be dismissed at the outset. However, the California Superior Court for San Mateo County ruled against my motion. I appealed, but the First District Court of Appeal upheld the trial court (LifeVantage Corporation v. MacFarland, No. A141057 in the Court of Appeal, CIV 521137 in the Superior Court).
I asserted in my motion that the LifeVantage defamation suit was without merit, and I advanced that position in good faith. I disagree with the decisions of the Superior Court and Court of Appeal that declined to throw the entire lawsuit out at the outset.
Because of the personal expense that further litigation would have entailed, and for no other reason, I have reached a settlement with LifeVantage. Under the settlement, both parties have agreed to remove certain statements from the internet. Neither party has conceded any issue of fact or law.
Some terms to the settlement agreement are confidential. The terms of the settlement restrict my ability to comment on matters that may be of interest to you, so thank you for understanding why I may not respond to your inquiries, comments, etc. In order to resolve a further disagreement I have had with LifeVantage concerning the settlement agreement, I have disabled the comment function on this web page and removed the comments that had been made here.
