Before I get into the receiver’s report, I want to share a link to an article written by Robert FitzPatrick. FitPatrick is one of the most outspoken critics of network marketing/MLM and one of the most quoted anti-pyramid experts by the FTC.
After reading all the court documents, I have decided to continue to the series to see what can be learned from each court document filed by the attorneys for the FTC.
When the News came out the Vemma had been temporarily shut down by the Federal Trade Commission, it was a shock to the whole network marketing community.
In this editorial, I want to look at the TRO Application filed by Angeleque P. Linville, the leading attorney for the FTC office out of Dallas. Ms. Linville is without a doubt a very competent legal counsel, from reviewing her background.
But, when it comes to her TRO application, I respectfully disagree with her on several points, and truly take offense o the fact that in several areas she calls “Vemma a pyramid”, rather than an “alleged pyramid.” This may seem trivial to some, except that when anyone has already made up their mind in an argument, then it becomes hard for them to separate facts from their perceived reality.
