Update: On September 19, 2014, the appellate court overturned the district court's approval of the settlement proposed by the parties. The matter has been returned to the district court for further proceedings consistent with the appellate court's opinion, a copy of which can be found on this website under Court Documents. Therefore, at this time, class members will not receive the specific Settlement Vouchers described in the settlement, and may or may not receive any settlement benefits from this case, depending on further court proceedings. Additional information regarding these proceedings will be posted on this website as it becomes available.
This Settlement resolves a lawsuit over whether RadioShack Corporation (“Defendant”) violated certain requirements imposed by the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1681, et seq. (“FACTA”). Plaintiffs, on behalf of all members of the Class, have asserted that Defendant violated certain requirements imposed by FACTA. Specifically, Plaintiffs claim that Defendant printed the expiration date of credit or debit cards on receipts provided to Class Members and that such actions were in violation of FACTA. Defendant denies any liability or wrongdoing. The parties have entered into a Class Action Settlement Agreement and Release (“Settlement Agreement”) with Plaintiffs in order to resolve this lawsuit without the need for a trial.
What does the Settlement Provide?
