In an opinion handed down on August 18, 2021, Judge Fitzgerald of the Central District of California denied Defendant Gruma Corporation’s motion to dismiss in Iris Govea, et al. v. Gruma Corporation, No. 20-CV-8585-MWF (JCx) (C.D.Cal. Aug. 18, 2021). Plaintiffs Iris Govea and Oscar Medina allege that Defendant misleadingly labels its “Guerrero” line of tortilla products to give the impression that the products are from Mexico when they are instead made in the United States. In denying the motion to dismiss, Judge Filtzgerald held that it could “not determine as matter of law that the [Guerrero] Packing would not mislead a reasonable consumer.” By denying the motion to dismiss, plaintiffs’ claims for violations of California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act (“CLRA”); (2) California’s False Advertising Law (“FAL”); (3) California’s Unfair Competition Law (“UCL”); and (4) breach of implied warranty will all move forward towards trial. Faruqi & Faruqi represents Plaintiffs and the putative class in the matter.
