Www.USGymSettlement.com – LA Fitness Membership Cancellation Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
The original lawsuit in this case is called the Vaughn v. LA Fitness International, LLC. Actually this settlement consists of 3 lawsuits that have been combined. So the class representatives are Kenneth J. Silver, Joshua Vaughn and Lori C. Bohn and Amalia Sible. Some other representatives also include Sharon N. Lockett and Justin P. Bonzell. The reason for this lawsuit is that it did not process the request to cancel memberships. This is a breach of contract. The language was also confusing as to how much advance notice had to be given in order to cancel the membership and get the prepaid last month’s dues. So if you think that you are eligible to get any benefits, then you can go to the www.USGymSettlement.com site in order to get more information on what you will need to do.
The time period for the LA Fitness Membership Cancellation Class Action Lawsuit Settlement is between May 18, 2006 to January 1, 2013. You are not eligible if you had the membership in California. You are also excluded if you are a member of the New Jersey Class Action Settlement. So if you are eligible, and are a class member, you will get a 45 day club access pass which is worth about $45. So you or someone you give this pass to on the first day will be able to use the LA Fitness club for 45 days in a row. You may also be a subclass member. So you may also get a different benefit depending on which subclass you fall into.
There are two subclasses in this case. The first subclass is subclass A. The second subclass is subclass B. So make sure you file for the correct subclass. Otherwise you may not get your benefits. Each subclass will get a slightly different benefit. You can get details on each subclass at the www.USGymSettlement.com site. It is really easy to file your claim if you have all your information ready. So I would suggest that you go through the claim form in order to figure out what you need.
In order to file it, you will need the Claim ID and Access Code. You will find both in the postcard that you received in the mail. The deadline for you to submit this online or by regular mail is August 9, 2013. This class and subclasses can be very confusing. In fact I am confused. So if you are not sure and would like to find out what to file for, do contact the settlement administrator who will be able to tell you which class you fall into. If you decide to stay as a class member or a subclass member, then you can also file an objection if you wish to do that. Basically this means that you want to tell the court that you do not like something about the case. It can be anything. When you file your objection, also include information on whether you want to go to the Fairness Hearing. You can also list the witnesses that you can call upon for live testimony. This can also include oral deposition. You can also get an affidavit from the witness during the hearing. If you wish to file the objection, then you must do so by August 9, 2013.
The Fairness Hearing will be on September 19, 2013. This is when the court will decide if the settlement is fair. This is also when the court will listen to any and all objections. If you had told the court that you were going to speak, then this is when you will get your chance to do this. You cannot speak if you did not request first. Another thing that the court will do is to decide on the amount of the fees and other expenses. If you had not requested to speak, you do not need to attend this hearing in order for you to get your benefits. So if you do not live in Philadelphia, PA where the hearing will be held, you do not need to book airfares or rent cars to get there. Also if you decide that you want to opt out of the LA Fitness Membership Cancellation Class Action Lawsuit Settlement, you will not be able to speak at the hearing even if you wanted to.
