California Norms Restaurants Gift Card Settlement Notes
- Yordi Martinez v. Norms Restaurants LLC
- Case No. RIC1512432
- Pending in the California Superior Court for the County of Riverside
Plaintiff Yordi Martinez filed this class action lawsuit claiming the Norms Restaurants failed to redeem gift cards for cash, upon request, when the remaining balance on the gift card was less than $10.00. Since January 1, 2008, California law specifically requires that a gift card must be redeemed for cash, upon a customer’s request, when the gift card balance falls below $10.00.
Under the terms of the California Norms Restaurant gift card settlement, Norms will conduct at least one employee training session in all of its California locations for purposes of reviewing gift card redemption policies, update its employee manuals and website to include language that ““California law requires that a gift card must be redeemed for cash, upon a customer’s request, when the gift card balance falls below $10.00,” and also post a signage in an employee-only section of its California restaurants that includes this policy.
Norms denies any wrongdoing but concluded it is in their best interests to settle the action to avoid further litigation.
The settlement was given final approval and there is no deadline for submitting a claim form.
