U.S. top court rejects POM Wonderful appeal over advertising

By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected POM Wonderful’s challenge to a 2010 Federal Trade Commission finding that the pomegranate juice maker’s advertising was misleading in claiming its products fight ailments such as heart disease, prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction. The Supreme Court left in place a January 2015 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit largely upholding the government’s action. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled that POM Wonderful could not advertise that its pomegranate drinks treat or prevent heart disease or other medical conditions unless it has proof, upholding an FTC order.
