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 an effort to resolve this lawsuit without the need for a trial.
What does the Settlement Provide?
Class Members who submit timely and valid Claim Forms will receive a $10.00 Voucher that can be used for products or services at any RadioShack Store. If claims for Settlement Vouchers exceed $5,350,000 (“Settlement Amount”) after deducting certain other payments, the amount of Settlement Vouchers will be reduced pro rata.
