Claim Form Deadline
Jacqueline Brenner v. Kohl’s Corp., Case No. 13-cv-10935 RGS, U.S. District Court, District of Massachusetts.
The Kohl’s ZIP code settlement resolves a class action lawsuit (Brenner v. Kohl’s Corp.) that accuses Kohl’s of violating a Massachusetts state law that prohibits companies from requesting and recording personal identification information in connection with credit or debit card purchases.
Kohl’s denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to establish a $425,000 class action settlement fund to pay out Class Members and resolve the litigation. If the class action settlement is approved, Gift Cards of the “appropriate amount” will be sent to Class Members who submit valid and timely Claim Forms to the Settlement Administrator.
