The state's Attorney General, Greg Abbott, then formally charged the corporation, and the corporation's founder, Sam Caster with a series of charges relating to violations of the state's Deceptive Practices Trade Act. Mannatech settled the civil complaint on February 26, 2009 by agreeing to pay $4 million in restitution to clients who purchased products and $2 million to the state to cover its costs in the case.
