(Updates with lawsuit claims in second paragraph.)


Nov. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Quixtar Inc., a former subsidiary of Amway Corp., and two law firms representing three independent business owners who sued the company, reached a settlement worth as much as $155 million, attorneys in the case said.

The settlement, filed today in federal court in San Francisco, resolves a lawsuit alleging that Quixtar ran a fraudulent pyramid scheme inducing people to invest in products to sell and making false promises that they could earn big profits, according to court filings.

The settlement includes $55 million in cash, $21 million in product refunds, price reductions and other compensation, according to the filing.


The story was also reported on the front page of the USAToday 11.05.10.
