New York (CBS)
The husband and wife team behind a multi-level marketing company are defending themselves as the company's former consultants are suing in a class-action lawsuit.
A former LuLaRoe consultant in Sioux Falls told Angela Kennecke earlier this month that she was left with $5,000 in inventory that the company would not provide a refund for.'
In a interview with CBS News, company co-founders Mark and DeAnne Stidham described LuLaRoe as a family-run business and dismissed claims from the lawsuit that company is a pyramid scheme.
"What that is is an uneducated opinion. They haven't looked at who we are because we sell product through to a consumer, and it's highly-desirable product. That is not a pyramid scheme," Mark said.
