Court Grants Preliminary Approval in Class Action Involving YTB International, Inc

Montroy Law Offices and Witzel Kanzler Dimmitt & Kanzler announced a settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against YTB International, Inc. and certain subsidiaries, individuals, and entities affiliated with YTB on behalf of all independent marketing representatives (IMRs) or referring travel agents (RTAs) who paid fees to YTB on or before January 19, 2009 for an online travel agency (OTA) and maintained the OTA for less than 18 months; have not already received a refund; and didn't receive commissions in excess of the fees paid to YTB. The lawsuit alleged that the sales of OTAs marketed through a network of IMRs and RTAs constituted an illegal pyramid sales scheme and chain referral sales technique. Class Members may receive an OTA for a free access period, valued at least $549.
