The new Colgate Total Lasting White Mouthwash has a fluoride formula that helps re-mineralize enamel, fights tartar and freshens breath without the burn of alcohol. The new mouthwash also creates an invisible shield on teeth to help prevent stains from forming, so consumers can enjoy eating meals without worrying about future stains.

U.S. District Court Awards $11 Million to Class Counsel in ERISA Action against Colgate-Palmolive Co

Following approval of a class action settlement reached in a dispute regarding an employer's alleged miscalculation of pension benefits, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York granted the plaintiffs' motion for attorneys' fees. The complexity of the case supported the requested award. In 2007, the plaintiffs in three lawsuits alleged that Colgate-Palmolive Cos.' employee retirement income plan miscalculated the pension benefits of several thousand participants. The cases were consolidated and the parties eventually agreed to a settlement of $45.9 million. The class members received an average of $5,330 per person. The district court approved the settlement agreement as fair, adequate and reasonable. The plaintiffs moved for attorneys' fees representing 25% of the settlement fund. Counsels' hourly rates multiplied by the time devoted to the case resulted in a lodestar of $2,200,927. The requested $11,475,000 reflected a multiplier of 5.2 of the lodestar. The district court observed that ERISA is a highly specialized area of the law. According to class counsel, relatively few lawyers have the expertise to litigate ERISA claims. A reasonable baseline for attorneys' fees in an ERISA case of a comparable size was 25% to 28% of the settlement fund.
