Being without easy access to cash in the modern world can present quite a few challenges. The plaintiffs in the Fuentes, et al v. UniRush, LLC, et al. class action lawsuit can now be financially compensated for losses arising out of a disruption in RushCard prepaid debit card service between October 12th, 2015 and October 31st, 2015. The defendants deny that they can be held liable for this service disruption but have come to a compromise with the plaintiffs in order to put end to the lawsuit. Those who are part of the Settlement Class and would like to be compensated for their losses can go to the Rush Settlement website to file a claim online.
What else do I need to know about the Rush Settlement?
- Class Members who can provide reasonable documentation of a loss resulting from not being able to use their RushCard during the service disruption are eligible to receive up to $500
- Class Members that cannot or do not wish to provide documentation of losses sustained during the service disruption will still be eligible to receive $100
- If the total amount of timely approved claims exceeds $1.5 million each claim will be reduced on a pro rata basis
- The Rush Settlement also provides additional benefits to certain Class Members including a Fee Holiday and a $25 statement credit
Time is of the essence for Class Members wishing to file a claim as all claim forms are due by August 30th, 2016. Those wishing to object to the settlement or exclude themselves completely will need to do so by the August 30th, 2016 date as well. The Fairness Approval hearing for the Rush Settlement will be held on September 12th, 2016 at 11 AM.
