“It appears quite evident that this entire drawn-out, puffed-up, unnecessary litigation was unfortunately a severe abuse of ‘governmental power’ that evidently was brought on in order to aggrandize certain individual’s careers and to ‘flex’ government agency powers of those individuals involved,” states former CEO James Carlson.

(SCOTUS Docket Number 19-508)

LEGAL NOTICE: “The State of Utah’s Largest Consumer-Protection Settlement of $12,000,000 in this Alleged FTC Government-Abuse Case Scheme sadly casts a huge, dark shadow on Celebrities and their intentions. Do ‘High Pressure Sales Tactics’ Equal A Classic ‘Get-Rich-Quick Scheme?’ No. Historical data clearly shows that 97.3% of ‘legitimate businesses’ use the exact same approaches and sales tactics/practices and do it 100% legally and successfully.”

On February 16, 2022, the Federal District Court for the Central District of Utah entered an order settling a 2 ½ yearlong case involving alleged Governmental: (1) Overreach, (2) Unlawful Entrapment and (3) Abuse of Powers/Authority by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Utah Department of Commerce (UDC) against an award-winning, highly-rated and Five Star reviewed Financial-Education Company based in Utah. For over a decade, Zurixx LLC, teamed-up with various celebrities, and financial industry experts, in order to successfully offer ease-of-use Financial Education products to consumers that any ‘average joe’ could use and understand. Consumer popularity of these educational programs, coupled with tens-of-thousands of real-life success stories, proved the systems validity and effectiveness over 7 years of problem-free operations.

>Zurixx LLC was recognized with the “Best of Utah – Financial and Entrepreneur Education Award” for 5-straight years (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019).

The Supreme Court unanimously held in a decision authored by Justice Breyer that “§13(b) as currently written does NOT grant the Commission authority to obtain equitable monetary relief.” The court stated that the language of Section 13 refers only to injunctions; that the structure and language of 13(b) authorizing permanent injunctions is designed as a limiting force on the FTC; and that 13(b) is focused on prospective, rather than retrospective relief. The court went on to explain that because Sections 5(l) and 19 of the FTC Act explicitly provide for “other and further equitable relief,” as well as “refund of money or return of property,” 13(b) is not meant to be as broad as the other provisions providing for equitable relief.


>Zurixx LLC Makes List of Utah’s Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies ( Oct., 2014 ) … Zurixx has been named one of Utah’s Top 15 Emerging Elite Companies as part of MWCN’s Annual Utah Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies! (

“Every customer is a valuable individual to Zurixx. However, despite Zurixx’ outstanding online 5-Star ratings, and years of blue-ribbon industry recognition, as well as over 70,000 satisfied customers, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Utah Department of Consumer Protection (UDCP) erroneously sued the company in October 2019 and published what can only be described as ‘wild allegations of consumer misrepresentation’ and ‘aggressive business tactics.’ All accusations were based upon the allegations of a mere 25 dissatisfied and disgruntled customers (who were upset because they could no longer gain access to Zurixx trainings because of the government’s actions.”

“Fortunately, the FTC and UDCP were FORCED TO AMMEND their allegations due to a landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year. In FTC v. AMG [citation] the Supreme Court held that the FTC had, for nearly 50 years, ABUSED ITS POWERS AND AUTHORITY by targeting companies, such as Zurixx, using methods and damage calculations that were NOT authorized by Congress and which deprived individuals and companies of their rights to due process.”

“Zurixx partnered with internationally known celebrities from networks like ABC, A&E and HGTV in an attempt to help celebrities monetize their ‘fame’ by way of financial, business and real-estate seminars. They specialize in curriculum development for these educational seminars, leadership summits and business workshops. The Cottonwood Heights company has a staggering three-year growth of 5,626% with $130 million in revenue, good enough to rank #43 on the 2016 Inc. 5000.”

>Zurixx Coaches Receive ATD Coaching Certification Training (March 2, 2017) … Zurixx Coaches recently attended a two day in-office course where they were trained in best practices for helping students, diagnosing problems, and creating success. This course was offered by The Association for Talent Development (ATD), the world’s largest association dedicated to those who develop talent in organizations. All 13 of our full-time coaches participated/finished the training.

Counsel petitioned to the Supreme Court in order to hear their case against the FTC, specifically on the question of whether Section 13(b) of the FTC Act allows for the FTC to seek monetary relief. While the Ninth Circuit's decision was in alignment with most other circuit courts and numerous FTC cases before, counsel had found that the Seventh Circuit had ruled in the 2019 case FTC v. Credit Bureau Center that Section 13(b) does NOT give the FTC this authority, creating a circuit split.[8] The Supreme Court granted certiorari to the case in July 2020. (

AMG Capital Management, LLC v. FTC is a U.S. Supreme Court case dealing with the ability of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to seek ‘monetary relief’ for restitution or disgorgement from those ‘it’ found in violation of trade practices. The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that:

“… the FTC ‘misused its authority’ granted by the Federal Trade Commission Act under Section 13(b) in order to obtain monetary relief.”
