  2. What is this lawsuit about?

    This is a $50.8 million Settlement of a class action lawsuit about whether Justice misled shoppers by marking items “40% off” when this price was in reality the regular price. Justice denied all of the claims and said it did nothing wrong. The Settlement Class consists of all individuals who purchased merchandise from Justice from January 1, 2012 through February 28, 2015, except for those who were eligible to be Class Members in an earlier class action against Justice in Ohio. The Court granted final approval to the Settlement on July 29, 2016 and the Settlement became final and effective in 2017 after various appeals were resolved.

  3. What does the Settlement provide?

    This Settlement will provide certain Settlement Benefits to settle claims of any person who purchased merchandise from Justice, by in-store purchase or by direct order (internet or phone), from January 1, 2012 through February 28, 2015. There are Two Options.

    All eligible Class Members will have a choice from Option One: 1) a cash award (as set forth below based on state of residence); or 2) a voucher for a purchase at Justice stores (as set forth below based on state of residence).

    Alternatively, in Option Two, certain Class Members who, from January 1, 2012 through February 28, 2015 either made: 1) more than five purchases; AND/OR 2) one or more purchases each totaling $105 or greater can choose either: 1) a check for 14% of total purchases; or 2) a voucher for 20% of total purchases. These amounts may be rounded to the next dollar amount.

    A Class Member who does not submit a claim will automatically receive a voucher in the amount set forth below, based on the state of residence and depending on whether accurate contact information for the Class Member is available.

    If the amount needed to pay valid claims exceeds the total funds available to pay Class Members’ claims, payments may be reduced and paid in proportion to other valid claims. If any money remains after all Class Members’ cash claims, and all fees and costs are paid, the money will be returned to Justice.
