- Case No. 9:15-cv-81139-cohn/seltzer
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida
Class members of the Rooms to Go Protection Plan class action lawsuit contend that the defendant, Rooms to Go, failed to apply the leather or furniture protectors to pieces sold to customers. The breach of contract with protection plans working in addition to product sale is enough for the class to try receive some distribution. Rooms to Go denies any allegations and all liability, but has agreed to a settlement in an effort to avoid additional expenses and litigation.
Rooms to Go will be held accountable for up to $13,500,000 in total distributions. Qualifying class members have two options for their claim. A cash value up to 10% of the amount paid for protection plans may be received. This percentage does not include the amount paid for the furniture. Should total claims exceed the maximum amount, percentages will be prorated. Members may also claim a merchandise voucher worth up to 45% of the amount paid for the plans. Voucher value will not carry over between purchases after receipt.
Involved class members have the right to hire personal lawyers, but will receive representation from court appointed lawyers who will be paid via the settlement fund. The Class Counsel includes:
- Douglas J. McNamara
- Eric A. Kafka
- Theodore J. Leopold
- Leslie M. Kroeger
- Diana L. Martin
