HelloFresh Settlement Details 2021 – $14 Million To Settle The HelloFresh TCPA Lawsuit…

Judge Gives Final Approval To $14 Million HelloFresh TCPA Class Action Settlement 

Judge William G. Young of a Massachusetts federal court has given the green light in the final approval of the HelloFresh TCPA Class Action Settlement. 

Updates Surrounding The HelloFresh TCPA Class Action Litigation

The judge has filed the final approval order covering the $14 million HelloFresh TCPA Settlement Agreement in mid-October this year. The said settlement agreement originated from a class action lawsuit filed against HelloFresh by a customer who argued that they received unsolicited meal kit advertisement calls on their phone. 

Plaintiff Grace Murray contended that HelloFresh’s unauthorized marketing calls directed to her and other similarly situated individuals are a blatant violation of the TCPA or Telephone Consumer Protection Act. 

Murray shared that she started receiving marketing phone calls from HelloFresh after she did not decide to renew her trial subscription with the meal kit delivery company in 2018. 

She specifically asked the company to include her number on the do-not-call list, but she still got bombarded with advertisement calls.   

HelloFresh has vehemently denied the allegations and stressed that it did not do anything wrong.

As the settlement proceedings draw nearer to its end, Consider The Consumer has compiled the following information for claimants to take note of:

  • It is estimated that more than a hundred thousand qualified claimants can receive settlement payments of $89 each;
  • The said number of claimants was determined after more than four million Class members were sent notifications on the settlement proceedings, but only more than 100,000 filed their HelloFresh TCPA Settlement claims before the deadline; 
  • Individuals who can join the settlement are only those who have received a marketing call directly from HelloFresh or through a third-party company between the 5th of September 2015 and the 31st of December 2019; 
  • Judge Young allocated $10,000, $5,000, and $2,000 as service award payments to different plaintiffs who participated in the class action litigation. 

Settlement Biggest In Local History

Reports tout the HelloFresh TCPA Settlement agreement as to the largest of its kind in the local Massachusetts federal court history. 

In the agreement’s initial details, HelloFresh is expected to pay out an amount of $14 million to cover different expenses and pay the certified class members who joined the lawsuit proceedings. 

Details suggest that the said amount will be used to pay service awards to the plaintiffs, attorney fees and costs, and administrative costs. 

After all of the said amount is paid for, the remaining money would then be subdivided amongst class members. It is expected that each one would receive $89 worth of payout checks. 

Four million people were initially contacted by the authorities to ask for their consent to join the settlement. More than a hundred thousand individuals also filed their settlement claims before the set deadline. 

A Sole Party Objects 

However, one class member believed that the HelloFresh TCPA Settlement amount was not enough to cover all of the punitive damages inflicted by HelloFresh’s actions. 

In violating the safety provisions of the TCPA, Sarah McDonald contended that the settlement amount should amount to $7.2 billion compared to the smaller agreed amount. 

She also made several allegations questioning the settlement details putting forward a theory that the class counsel did not do its part in representing the class members’ best interest.

Meanwhile, the class legal team argued that the settlement amount is enough and on par compared to past cases of the same scope and how much they ended up paying as damages.
