Rougvie, et al. v. Ascena Retail Group, Inc., et al.
Case No: 2:15-cv-724-MAK
A $50.8 million settlement has been reached with Tween Brands, Inc. and Ascena Retail Group, Inc. ("Justice") in a class action lawsuit about whether Justice misled shoppers by marking items “40% off” when this price was in reality the regular price. Justice denies all of the claims and says it did nothing wrong. Those included have legal rights and options, such as submitting a claim for benefits or excluding themselves from or objecting to the settlement.
Eligible claimants may receive a cash payment for $7, $13 or $20 or a Justice voucher for $10, $20 or $30 without documentation of their Justice purchases (Option 1). For claims with documentation of six or more purchases or documentation of a single purchase of $105 or more, claimants may receive a check for 14% or a Justice voucher for 20% of documented purchases (Option 2). To get a cash payment, you must submit a claim.
On May 19, 2016, the Court granted a motion to accept claims filed after the initial deadline of April 4, 2016. All claims filed on or before May 20, 2016 will be accepted as valid and timely submissions.
On July 29, 2016, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania granted Final Approval to the Settlement. However, objectors subsequently appealed that decision.
The time for final resolution of the appeal is uncertain. We will continue to advise as matters develop. Class Counsel desire to pay out the Settlement to Class Members as soon as possible, and will take every step to do so if and when the appeals process is resolved in favor of the Settlement. Once appeals are resolved, and assuming the court upholds the settlement, payments/vouchers will promptly be issued to Settlement Class Members with valid claims.
