What Is This Case About?
The lawsuit alleges that Reebok violated certain state laws regarding the marketing and sale of toning shoes and apparel. Reebok denies all wrongdoing. The Court did not decide which side was right. Instead, the parties have decided to settle. The parties believe the proposed settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate and it provides substantial benefits to the Class.
What Does This Settlement Provide?
The settlement utilizes the same $25 million fund announced recently with the FTC, less the costs of notice and settlement administration, to pay claims to eligible Class Members relating to the purchase of Eligible Shoes and Eligible Apparel. Reebok shall separately pay court awarded attorneys' fees and costs and class representative awards. Reebok is also agreeing to make certain conduct changes.
The lawsuit was resolved in conjunction with Reebok’s earlier settlement with the Federal Trade Commission, which was announced on September 28, 2011. Working together, plaintiffs, Reebok and the FTC agreed that the $25 million could be used to pay refunds to all consumers, less costs of notice and settlement administration.
Am I Eligible For A Payment?
To be eligible for a payment, Class Members must have submitted a complete claim form electronically no later than April 10, 2012 or postmarked no later than April 10, 2012. Payment amounts to eligible Class Members will vary depending upon, among other factors, the product(s) purchased, the number and amounts claimed by all Class Members and other adjustments and deductions. The amount could be more (up to double), the same, or less than $50 for each pair of Eligible Shoes, $40 for each EasyTone Capri and EasyTone Pants, and $25 for each applicable shirt, bra top and top.
When Will Payments Be Mailed?
Checks will mail to valid, timely submitted claims no later than August 8, 2012.
The Court held a hearing in this case on January 17, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. Eastern time in the federal courthouse, courtroom 2, Donohue Federal Building, 595 Main Street, Worcester, Massachusetts, and approved the settlement, payment of attorneys’ fees and expenses, service awards to the named plaintiffs, and related issues.
