Analysis of the Settlement Amount


The settlement fund established by the Defendant amounts to $1,800,000.00. The final amount of the Pro Rata and CCPA cash payments will be determined based on the number of claims received. Attorneys' fees of up to 30% of the settlement fund and up to $50,000.00 in litigation costs will be paid from the settlement fund upon Court approval.


Why Is There a Class Action Settlement?

The Settlement is the outcome of negotiations between both parties after exchanging numerous documents and receiving Court rulings. The parties agreed to the Settlement to avoid the expenses and uncertainty of a trial. It is important to note that the Court has not made any ruling in favor of either the Plaintiffs or the Defendant, and the Defendant denies any wrongdoing.


The next steps include a Final Approval Hearing scheduled for January 23, 2024, where the Court will decide whether to approve the Settlement.
