Texas AG Sues Mannatech

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said that he has filed a lawsuit against dietary supplements seller Mannatech Inc., claiming that the Coppell-based network is operating an illegal marketing scheme.

Exaggerated claims about the therapeutic benefits of Mannatech (nasdaq: MTEX - news - people )'s supplements and nutritional products were unlawfully used to increase sales, Abbott said Thursday.

"Aided by an army of multi-level sellers and their fictitious claims about its products, Mannatech has aggressively marketed supplements to countless unwitting purchasers," the attorney general said in a written statement. "With today's enforcement action, the Office of the Attorney General seeks to shut down an elaborate scheme to defraud innocent consumers across the nation."

The suit, filed Thursday in state district court in Travis County also names Mannatech owner Sam Caster.
