Editor’s Choice: Our Favorite Class Action Settlements This Month
This lawsuit claims that Defendant violated Michigan’s Preservation of Personal Privacy Act, M.C.L. § 445.1712 (“PPPA”) by disclosing information related to its customers’ magazine subscriptions to third parties. While Consumer Reports believes that its practices were in compliance with Michigan law, Consumer Reports chose to settle this case, without admitting liability, to focus time, effort and resources on protecting consumers, as the organization has since its founding, and not on additional legal fees and the uncertainty of litigation. The Court has not determined who is right. Rather, the Parties have without admitting liability agreed to settle the lawsuit to avoid the uncertainties and expenses associated with ongoing litigation. This case is mustering up an astounding settlement pool of 16,400,000. Get in on this, and file your claim today!
