Court to Notify $50.8 Million Class Action Settlement with Tween Brands, Inc. and Ascena Retail Group, Inc

A notification program began, as ordered by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, to alert current and former Justice customers about a $50.8 million proposed class action settlement with Tween Brands Inc. and Ascena Retail Group Inc. (Justice). This settlement resolves a class action lawsuit about whether Justice misled shoppers by marking items 40% off when this price was in reality the regular price. Justice denies all of the claims and says that it did nothing wrong. Notices will be sent directly to potential Settlement Class Members and will appear in nationwide media outlets leading up to a hearing on May 20, 2016, when the Court will consider whether to grant final approval to the settlement. The Settlement Class includes individuals who purchased merchandise from Justice between January 1, 2012 and February 28, 2015. This includes individuals who purchased merchandise at a Justice store as well as those who purchased merchandise from Justice by phone or online. Ohio residents who purchased merchandise from Justice stores in Ohioonly between July 1, 2012 and August 31, 2014 are not included in the Settlement Class because of a prior settlement in the Ohio State class action, Perez v. Tween Brands Inc., No. 14-CV-00119, Court of Common Pleas, Lake County, Ohio.
