As reported on NYDailyNews.com, Winfrey and Oz, who has made numerous appearances on her top ranked talk show, filed suit against dozens of companies Wednesday in Manhattan Federal Court.
As noted in the report, the companies allegedly used the names and likenesses of Winfrey and the physician to promote and sell a range of products, including weight loss supplements and anti-aging creams.
