California CORT Furniture Rental Zip Code Settlement Notes
- Sang Doan v. CORT Furniture Rental Corporation, et al.
- Case No. 30-2017-00904345-CU-BT-CXC
- Pending in the Superior Court of California, County of Orange, Civil Complex Center
Plaintiff Sang Doan filed this class action lawsuit alleging he and other consumers were prompted to provide their personal identification information when using a credit card to purchase items at CORT Furniture Rental stores in California – a violation of the Song-Beverly Credit Card Act.
This law prohibits any business which accepts credit cards from requesting the cardholder to provide personal identification, including their Zip code. Doan contends that when he was completing his transaction at a CORT Furniture Rental store in California, he was asked to provide his Zip code and other personal identification information to the store clerk processing the sale.
Doan claims he believed he was required to comply with the sales clerk’s request for his Zip code and other personal identification information in order to complete his transaction, so he did so. He was also provided with a printed copy of the sales order, which recorded all of this information.
CORT denies it did anything wrong or illegal and admits no liability. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the CORT Furniture Rental Zip Code Settlement website.
