LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Careismatic Brands, Inc. today issued the following statement regarding the settlement of litigation with FIGS, Inc.:
Careismatic Brands, Inc. (formerly known as Strategic Partners Inc. (“SPI”)) and FIGS, Inc. (along with its founders, Trina Spear and Heather Hasson) (together, “FIGS”), have settled all litigation brought by SPI against FIGS. As part of the settlement, all litigation between the parties will end and neither party will make any payments or have any other obligations to the other.
Careismatic brought this litigation to ensure a fair and transparent marketplace and to protect healthcare workers from false and dangerous advertising claims. The facts and evidence uncovered during the litigation made it abundantly clear that FIGS’ marketing claims that were the focus of the case were unauthorized, misleading and deceptive. Following the filing of the litigation, FIGS ceased making those claims. Careismatic now looks forward to competing in a fair marketplace based on accurate and factually supported marketing claims.
