It is my opinion that this case could set a dangerous precedent in several ways: by fining an individual (Prof. Seitz) when the liability should stop at the company, by requiring an evidentiary standard higher than the FDA, and by imposing a rather high penalty on a small startup given that there does not seem to be malicious intent and a warning to tone down the claims may have sufficed. The ruling should be overturned.
