Papa John's text settlementDetails on how to file a claim for the Papa John’s text spam settlement have arrived! If you received an unsolicited text message from Papa John’s, you may be eligible to claim $50 cash from the class action lawsuit settlement.

The Papa John’s pizza text settlement will resolve a 2010 class action lawsuit (Agne, et al. v. Papa John’s International Inc., et al.) accusing the pizza chain of sending more than 500,000 illegal text messages to Papa John’s customers advertising pizza specials. The text messages were illegal, plaintiffs say, because they were sent without the customers’ consent and with the use of an automatic dialing system in violation of the TCPA.

(Consumers who have received unsolicited text messages or cell phone calls from companies can sue these companies for TCPA damages. If you were contacted on your cell phone by a company without your permission, visit the Text Message Spam, Cell Phone Call TCPA Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Investigation for more information.)

Papa John’s continues to deny it did anything wrong in sending the text messages, arguing that customers gave consent to the messages when they provided their telephone numbers when purchasing a pizza. The company also maintains that — as a franchisor — it is not liable for the actions of its franchisees, which were the ones who hired the marketing company OnTime4U to send the text messages.

OnTime4U is also listed as a defendant in the Papa John’s pizza class action lawsuit.

Despite these arguments, which a federal judge rejected last year, the defendants have agreed to establish a $16.5 million class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.

Class Members of the Papa John’s class action settlement include all persons in the United States who received at least one unsolicited text message that marketed a Papa John’s branded product, good or service through OnTime4U.

Class Members that submit a valid Claim From will receive $50 from the class action settlement. Each potential Class Member will also receive a voucher code good for the online purchase of one free large one-topping pizza from Papa John’s.

You do not have to file a Claim Form to receive the free Papa John’s pizza voucher. However, you must submit a valid Claim Form by September 10, 2013 to receive the cash award.

Claim Forms and more information on your rights in the Papa John’s Pizza Text Message Class Action Lawsuit Settlement can be found at www.OnTime4UPapaJohnsPizzaSettlement.com.

The case is Agne, et al. v. Papa John’s International Inc., et al., Case No. 2:10-CV-01139 JCC, Western District of Washington.

    nothing here been waiting 5 days. so many people Rust is abusing. They all consumers can not be wrong. Rust has shiit list and once they put u on you are done. Rejection on anything u file rest of your life. BTW Garden city Group does same or worst. They are 100 times worst then Rust. Their shiit list is dangerous.GCG has rejected our family ob skechers, yogurt, pizza,ACT mouthwash,clearwire, ATT,Bayer,coppertone cream and many more. Just no answer and auto reject even with receipts.

  • kendra November 13, 2013

    Still nothing here in Massachusetts. I just got my mail.

  • Sylia November 13, 2013

    Only 3,347 Class members got checks totaling $ 167,350 and Attorney’s got $2,400,000

    There was a fund of a $16.5 million where does the rest go?

  • Liza November 13, 2013

    Sylia, If that 3,347 is correct then something very dirty and corrupt is going on.

  • Debbie November 13, 2013

    Still no check, Michigan…I think they pick and chose who they are going to pay. I have never received a dime from any of this claims on this site.

  • Debbie November 13, 2013

    I will be filing a complaint with BBB.

  • Sylia November 13, 2013

    Yes, look at the final documents of the website!

    I received nothing either!

  • k November 13, 2013

    heres a thought ,papa johns has Radiation in the crushed peppers ,

  • Liza November 13, 2013

    Sylia, You are right only 3,347 Class members getting checks for $50.00 out of a $16.5 million fund. After lawyer fees and what they paid out that leaves $13,932,650 that just disappears up in thin air.

  • jane doe November 13, 2013

    yes, it’s ridiculous how companies get away with ripping consumers off. The only ones that make out in the end are the lawyers, and the consulting companies and the companies who lie, and kill people all in the name of a dollar. Yet they can reject a person who files a claim for 50.00, BS

  • Vanni November 14, 2013

    Nothing here in Mass … more abuse from these people, so sad that they will cheap you out of $50 … I hope the lawyers fill their Mercedes up on the way to their cruises … actually met a guy on a flight … the bitch gave me his card … Rust consulting guy … he was a braggart … with his Harvard mouth … so sad … the suits I have applied for I have been affected by … this guy told me they actually monitor this site … reddit and classactionrebates to see the “web traffic” and to watch the little people scrounge for money …. time to blast rust consulting and GCG … f***king disgraces … so why don’t we as a group fight them??? They like suits???? lets give them one ….. I’ve been in law enforcement for 25 years and I can tell you … fight fire with a flamethrower and not a match?

  • R November 14, 2013

  • HOT pursuit November 14, 2013

  • kelly November 14, 2013

    You do not have to file a Claim Form to receive the free Papa John’s pizza voucher. However, you must submit a valid Claim Form by September 10, 2013 to receive the cash award. xxxxx How stupid is this .how are you going to know to send me a voucher? well you papa johns must already have my number and address hmm oh wait you delivered pizzas to my house ,and texted me

  • Sandy November 14, 2013

    If you want to see what Rust Consulting Inc. is all about
    Google ~ Complaints against Rust Consulting. They ripped off a lot of people with the , National Mortgage Settlement,
    and so, so much more.

  • Mike NY November 14, 2013

    I did a search on Rust Consulting the other day and read a complaint from this 77 year old lady having to do with a Settlement they are cheating her on and it brought me to tears .

  • Debbie November 14, 2013

    Here is a thought!! We stop filing the claims and the lawyers have nothing to go to court with. This should stop the $$$$$$ going in their pockets.



  • julie November 14, 2013

    I too have not received a check. I did not fill out the form until the end of August so I am going to give it some more time.

  • michael November 15, 2013

    Liza you hit it right on nose. Everyone should read Lizas both comments. Settlement Administrator like Rust and damm GCG how much they eat and cheat. You do the math. Sweet girl is so right.

  • Shell November 15, 2013

    still no check either guys.

  • Coffee Lover November 15, 2013

    Is anyone actually sure these checks went out? are they for this settlement? this company has a habit of not paying out for at least 6 months to a year on alot of these lawsuits, no update? it just ended on 9/10, thats kinda early for them to send a check?

  • Feria November 15, 2013

    Everbody in Florida I talked to got there’s one person is on her way to get her pizza now before they snatch that back but I haven’t received one and I no am filling the form out because i get a confirmation code

  • Cutie November 16, 2013


  • julie November 16, 2013

    I posted earlier that I had not received this check but I remembered that we decided not to pursue this one. We were eligible for both this one and the 1-800 contacts lawsuit. Both are handled by Rust . Based on the history of Rust not paying out when you file for too many class action lawsuits, even if you have receipts and get a notice from them, we decided that we didn’t want to risk the possible high payout of the 1-800 lawsuit, considering we both qualified. He wears contacts so there were calls from both of our phones and both of our business phones. We decided to pass on the $50 each that we would have received for this one because we didn’t want Rust leaving us out of the higher 1-800-contacts lawsuit. It’s unfortunate that Rust has “blacklisted” consumers from filing too much, even consumers who Rust contact directly with a claim number.

    We made sure to fax, e-mail, and certify mail both of our forms the day before the deadline. There is no way that Rust can tell us that they didn’t receive anything from us.

  • Diane November 17, 2013

    Cutie they have gone out and they are finished with the settlement distribution. When my mom and sister received theirs I called and checked wondering why I didnt get mine and they said I didn’t qualify…I saw their checks and took my mom to the bank to cash hers.

  • Liza November 17, 2013

    All I can say it is a shame that Rust Consulting is cheating so many of us out of our claims. Millions will go back to Papa Johns , Rust Consulting ,and who knows who else.

  • Jane Doe November 18, 2013

    We should all file a class action lawsuit against Rust consulting and Garden city for discrimination and egregiosly denying valid claims for their own monetary gain.Also if there is a black list consuners need to know . We as consumers buy more than one product from various companies just because rust consulting and gcc grab these suits up they are doing exactly what they are banning consumers from claiming. There should be a ban on how many class action suits they can administer.

  • anna marie petalino November 18, 2013

    I have not recieved any check form them either. I live in New Jersey

  • Debbie November 18, 2013



  • concerned citizen November 19, 2013

    Just so everyone knows please go check the closed settlements ,and open settlements,a lot of them have Rust Consulting, and Garden City Group, as their Settlement Administrator . Makes you wonder why they all hire these two crooked corporations as Settlement Administrators.

  • marcus November 19, 2013

    I have seen Papa John workers in Columbus, Atlanta and Honolulu never washing hands coming out of toilets, scratching their sss and making dough and touching all ingridients without gloves and how about sneezing on pizza while making. One guy with beard had his long beard on pizza spreading sauce and then cleaning nose. It is disgrace what they do. Now they wont pay claim of innocent thousands true claimants. This is out of control.

  • Justin November 20, 2013

    I never received a check on my claim. Rust consulting is abusing there power by not paying claims. They pick & choose whoever they want. F-that. They need to be stopped!

  • Nancy November 21, 2013

    I got the check about 10 days ago for $50.00. Thank you.

  • alflo November 21, 2013

  • anna marie petalino November 30, 2013

    • Denise m February 17, 2014

  • deelo December 4, 2013

    I agree with #82.. we are getting ripped off twice..

  • anna February 15, 2014

    Has anyone received anything from this yet?

  • Denise m February 17, 2014

    Nothing yet but what I’ve noticed is if rust coins is handling it chances are no payment is going to you. I’ve signed up for about 5 different claims that all ended last year, I haven’t received a payment an when I check rust done is handling claim, so if we ain’t got it by now I don’t think we getting it. Real talk

  • SKIP February 21, 2014

    My sister just told me she received a check Feb 19 for the Papa Johns settlement. I filled out a claim and never received my check and I thought these checks were distributed ;last year.

  • John June 3, 2014

    I still have never got any settlement from Papa John’s Check or Voucher. It is a shame to because my family and I eat their pizza at least once a week sometimes more.
