§ Two new class-action lawsuits against leggings retailer Lularoe says the company is running a pyramid scheme, convincing women to max out multiple credit cards, buy tens of thousands of dollars of merchandise, and even sell their breast milk to keep buying clothes the company knows they will never be able to sell.
§ The lawsuit filed last week claims Lularoe’s main source of income is not sales to customers, but the thousands of purchases by their sellers to build their “inventory.”
§ The plaintiffs describe a company that lures in women with the promises of being able to make money while staying home with their kids but when their business eventually fails, the plaintiffs claim the company refuses to refund them for the thousands of dollars of merchandise they can’t sell.
§ If you haven’t heard that saying yet, you will be familiar with it very soon!

§ In fact, on October 13th, he filed to trademark “Here comes da judge” and “Here comes da judge—Lionel Richie.”
