Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) July 02, 2013

United States District Court for the District of Colorado, Civil Action No. 10 CV 03115

On May 9th, 2013, a Denver federal jury returned a unanimous defense verdict in favor of 20/20 Institute on plaintiffs' claims under the Colorado Consumer Protection Act (“CCPA”). The plaintiffs and their attorneys alleged that 20/20 Institute had violated the CCPA; however, the jury sided with 20/20 Institute and rejected the claims made by Plaintiffs, Scott and Adrienne Czarniak, regarding the CCPA. The verdict supported 20/20 Institute's marketing practices for LASIK services, which 20/20 Institute has been providing to Coloradoans for years.

For nearly a decade, through its board certified independent ophthalmologists, 20/20 Institute has been providing the citizens of Colorado with clearer vision through LASIK. 20/20 Institute is known for its outstanding commitment to patient customer service, and also provides qualified patients with the peace of mind of a LASIK Money Back Guarantee.

Dr. Mark Danzo, OD CEO and Co-founder of 20/20 Institute states, “We understand that the decision to have LASIK is an important one for any patient. 20/20 Institute is committed to providing a World Class LASIK environment, and we afford patients a comfortable place to ask questions, where they can get the important information and the care that they need to help make their decision. Our LASIK Money Back Guarantee is our way of showing our commitment to our patient's visual outcome.”

20/20 Institute backs all of its LASIK procedures for qualified candidates with their exclusive 20/20 Institute LASIK Money Back Guarantee, meaning that qualified patients will achieve 20/20 vision after their LASIK procedure or they will receive a full refund. Details of the Money Back Guarantee can be obtained from 20/20 Institute.

20/20 Institute was represented by J. Scott Lasater and Randy Sego of Lasater & Martin, P.C., in Highlands Ranch, Colorado and C. Gregory Tiemeier of Tiemeier & Stich, P.C., in Denver, Colorado.

Plaintiffs were represented by Todd J. Krouner and Diana M. Carlino, from the Law Office of Todd J. Krouner, in Chappaqua, New York, and Keith Cross of Cross & Bennett, LLC, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The trial lasted 10 days in the United States District Court, in Denver, Colorado. The Honorable Richard P. Matsch presided.
