Www.MaddenTextSettlement.net – Steve Madden Text Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
You may be able to get a compensation of up to $150 in the Steve Madden Text Class Action Lawsuit Settlement which can be found a tthe www.MaddenTextSettlement.net site. You will be able to get this amount if you got a text message that promoted Steve Madden’s products or events. This should have happened between July 2010 and September 25, 2012 and you should have gotten this text without your consent or knowledge. The message you received must have been from a shortened number 91919 or 623336. These shortened numbers are known as short codes. Apparently the Defendant violated some laws here. The y specifically violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Of course the company denies that it did anything that was wrong.
If you wish to get about $150 in the Steve Madden Text Class Action Lawsuit Settlement, you must submit a claim form. You will be able to get the claim form at the www.MaddenTextSettlement.net site. The deadline for you to submit this is April 11, 2013. You must act in some way because whatever you do or do not do will affect your legal rights. You can submit your claim form online. It is very easy to do this. All you will need to do is enter some contact information. This includes your cell phone and your email address. In addition, you will have to enter the claim information. Once you have done that you can submit this online. It is very easy and quick and should take you less than 5 minutes to complete.
In addition to the monetary compensation, under the settlement, consumers will also get protection from future messages of this kind. If you do not give your consent, you will not receive these text messages. When you fill out the claim form, you are also provided with an option to remove your cell phone number. This removal is from any database or lists. So this is good. There are about 203,254 class members. The amount of $150 may end up being less if everyone files the claim form. This is because the settlement fund will be divided between all those who file the claim form in time.
So if you filed the claim form, you may be wondering when you will get your money. It will actually take a while because for one thing, the check will not be released until the settlement has been finally approved. Once it has been approved, the checks that you are entitled to will be released about 60-90 days after this. The Final Settlement Hearing is going to be on February 25, 2013. So if you calculate from now until 3 months after that, that sure is a long time to wait. Also this is the normal wait time if there are no objections or appeals, If there are either or both, the payment will be delayed even further because these objections or appeals have to be settled satisfactorily. You also need to know that once you receive your checks, you must cash them quickly. This is because if you set it aside and forget to cash it, they become void after 90 days.
If you are a class member, it is very likely that you will get a claim form in the mail. If you did not get it in the mail, you can download the claim form from the site and submit it via regular mail. You can as I mentioned earlier submit the claim online. You can also get your claim form by calling a toll free phone number which can be found at the site. Now you have to know that if you decide that you would like to get the compensation, then you will lose your right to sue the company. Also if you do nothing, you also cannot sue the Defendants. this is because your action to file or inaction to file will release the claims and you will not be able to take part in other lawsuits.
As in all cases such as this, the Court appoints lawyers to help you. I encourage you to accept their help and to send them questions if you have any. After all you do not have to pay to use their services. Why not use them? It is not often that you are able to get free legal advice without any strings attached. They will get up to 25% of the settlement funds so do not feel guilty about calling them. They are definitely well paid.
