Garvey Sued Over Phony Weight Loss Capsules

Former baseball great Steve Garvey is being sued by the federal government for diet infomercials that prosecutors say were bogus.

The Federal Trade Commission is seeking the one-point-one million dollars Garvey received for his endorsement. The non-jury trial began yesterday in Los Angeles federal court. An F-T-C lawyer says Garvey made flagrantly false and deceptive claims for the Enforma weight-loss system, telling viewers the capsules would let them eat “forbidden foods´´ like chicken, ribs and buttered biscuits and still lose weight.
