According to the class action lawsuit, these text ads violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act because consumers did not consent to receive them.

Steven Madden denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to a $10 million class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.

Class Members of the Steven Madden text class action settlement include all U.S. persons who, from July 2010 until September 25, 2012, received a text message promoting Steve Madden products and/or events from the “short codes” 91919 or 623336.

Class Members can also receive up to $150 if they submit a valid Claim Form by June 11, 2013. Settlement checks will be mailed within 60-90 days after the Settlement has been finally approved and/or after any appeals have been resolved.

A Final Fairness Hearing is scheduled for April 29, 2013.

    Got my check today!

    I just got my check in the mail yesterday. Thanks Steve Madden LTD! I would use this money to buy more shoes from them, but they are extremely inferior to Kenneth Cole and even Sketchers. It is funny that most people don’t know that Steve Madden himself went to prison for fraud. I can’t believe his company let him come back. Time for Steve Madden, LTD to rethink their business decisions and practices 😉

    Some people are getting their checks, but not me??? its 9/6; looks like most people got theirs end of August.

    I don’t know why people are lying, but the deadline was June 11th. They couldn’t have mailed checks out yet there hasn’t been enough time for the final approval or the appeals process to take place. There’s always a slow process to go through…
