LivingSocial to pay $4.5M for alleged non-refunded deals
In Re: LivingSocial Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation, Case No. MDL 2254
A settlement (“Settlement”) has been proposed in a class action lawsuit pending in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia (“Court”) titled In re LivingSocial Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation, Case No. 11-MC-00472-ESH-AK (“Action”).
If the Court gives final approval to the Settlement:
LivingSocial will create a fund of $4,500,000 from which each Settlement Class Member who submits a timely and valid Claim Form may receive monetary relief for a LivingSocial Deal that has expired, has not been redeemed and has not been refunded.
Settlement Class Members each have the ability to recover a pro rata share of that fund up to 100% of the amount they paid for any LivingSocial Deal Voucher that they still hold and have been unable to redeem.
Any funds left over after payment of Settlement Class Members’ claims will be distributed to the National Consumers League and Consumers Union, which are both not-for-profit organizations that represent consumers on marketplace and technology issues, among other things.
This is the only way to get a payment. Obtain a Claim Form from this website.
