Www.DiscoTextSettlement.com – Disco Text Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
Did you ever take part in the Disco Group Text Messaging Service? If you did, then you may be able to get some money from the company that offered the service. This company is Slide, Inc. You should have received a text message from the Disco messaging service even though you had no given consent to receive those messages. This is a clear violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. The amount that you may get from the Disco Text Class Action Lawsuit Settlement which can be found at www.DiscoTextSettlement.com can be as up to $500. How much each person receives varies based on the number of valid claims that are received. There are 400,000 or so people who are eligible to get a payment if they submit valid claim forms. The total amount of the fund is $6 million. How much you get will be out of this fund. However not the entire amount will go towards the payment of claims. Some of the money will go toward the payment of attorneys’ fees. The cost of administration will also come out of this.
If you did receive the unwanted text messages and you want to get money from the company, the only way that you can do this is to submit a claim form. In some instances you do not have to do this to remain in the class and get the money. However, in this case you do have to fill out the claim form and submit it by June 28, 2013. In order to do this you can click on the Submit a Claim link at the www.DiscoTextSettlement.com site. You will have to fill out your contact information first before you can proceed to fill it out online. Make sure that you enter the correct information. Also make sure that you fill it out completely. Failure to do either of these will result in your claim being rejected and not processed. You can only fill out one claim for one phone number. It does not matter how many text messages that you may have received. You can also call a toll free number in order to get a claim form. The claim form that you receive can be submitted via regular mail. So if you are not comfortable putting your personal information online, then this is the route that you should choose.
Usually payment is made in the form of a check. You will most likely receive this check between 60 – 90 days after the final approval of the settlement. This happens at the Final Fairness Hearing. This will take place on May 14, 2013. If you do receive a check, make sure that you cash it immediately. This is because this check will expire after 90 days. If you do not cash the check, the amount set aside for the uncashed checks will be donated. So you will not be able to get another check if your check expires.
Once the settlement is made final, you will no longer be able to sue the Defendants as you will no longer have the legal right to do so. The only way that you can stay out of the settlement and retain your right to sue is if you submit an exclusion form. This is something that you have to request in writing by April 2, 2013. Make sure that you find out the details of how to do this. There are specific things that you will need to mention in the letter. If you do not provide adequate information, your request may not be considered valid. If you are not sure if you are on the right path in terms of what to include in this letter, I would suggest that you talk to either the Disco Text Class Action Lawsuit Settlement administrator or the legal counsel that has been provided to you free of charge. If you decide to exclude yourself, you should not file a claim form as you will not get any compensation if you do. However if you are worried if by not submitting you would lose out on both, then go ahead and fill out the form too. However before you do that, talk to the administrator to find out if your exclusion letter has been received and if all the information that is contained in it is adequate.
