Pfizer, Inc. v. Superior Ct. (Galfano), B188106

Certification of class action, based on complaint alleging defendant's mouthwash was marketed in a misleading manner by indicating its use could replace the use of dental floss in reducing plaque and gingivitis, is set aside as the class definition is plainly overbroad.
