Byerson v. FabFitFun, Inc., et al.
Cook County, Illinois Circuit Court Case No. 2016-CH-13306
A class-wide settlement has been reached in a lawsuit about whether certain alleged gift cards included in FabFitFun seasonal boxes from parties such as Merrithew International Inc., Zumba Fitness, LLC, Physique 57 International Inc. and Reeds Jewelers, Inc. d/b/a The Jeweler's Wife (the “Vendors”), included an expiration date that violates certain state and federal gift card laws. FabFitFun and the Vendors deny all of the claims in the lawsuit, but have agreed to a settlement to avoid the cost and risk of a trial.
