  1. Why did I receive this check and notice?

    The Court appointed counsel to represent consumers in a class action captioned Rougvie v. Ascena Retail Group, pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. A Settlement Agreement with Justice Stores created a Cash Settlement Fund to pay cash to consumers in the Class who requested cash (as opposed to a voucher sent to every consumer in the Class) and to pay the court-approved Class Counsel's and the Claims Administrator's fees, costs, and other approved distributions. The federal court approved the Settlement. Payments and vouchers were issued in October of 2017.

    After distributing either vouchers or cash to over 18.4 million consumers in the Class, and paying the Claims Administrator and Class Counsel's court-approved fees and costs, and other distributions approved by the federal court as detailed in the Justice Settlement website, money remained in the Settlement Fund. The Parties joint moved the Court to approve a Supplemental Distribution to those Class Members who filed affirmative Claims. On February 26, 2019, the federal court entered an Order approving the remaining Settlement Fund money be distributed to the Class Members who previously filed affirmative claims for either a check or voucher. The checks are in the amount of $9.41. These checks were issued in March 2019.

  2. What is the current status of the Settlement?

    In this case, the Court granted final approval on July 29, 2016 and the Settlement became effective in 2017 after various appeals were resolved. All deadlines have now passed. As result, you can no longer file a claim, opt out or object to the Settlement. All relief has been distributed, except for the Supplemental Distribution approved by the Court’s Order of February 26, 2019.

  3. What does the Court’s Order provide?

    All individuals who filed affirmative claims for either a check or voucher prior to the claims deadline of April 4, 2016 received an equal share of the remaining Settlement Fund money - $9.41. Your share is based on the total funds available, not on the total value of your original claim. There is no option to file a new claim for additional funds.
