BRITISH COLUMBIA HOTEL ASSOCIATION AND CLASS ACTION CAPITAL PARTNERSHIP PORTAL
The British Columbia Hotel Association (BCHA), has partnered with Class Action Capital, a market leader in class action settlement claim management. Class Action Capital is already successfully working with a very large number of hotels and state associations across North America helping to recover substantial refunds on their behalf from a number of recent class action settlements. The BCHA will now offer these value-added services to its members.
Many hotels do not have the time, resources or relevant data available to file a settlement claim, and Class Action Capital will work with them to submit a fully comprehensive claim recovery, while minimizing the use of their employees’ time, internal resources and the risk of errors when managing claims themselves.
Below are the latest settlement opportunities available for BCHA members.
CANADIAN CATHODE RAY TUBE (CRT) CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT – $49,800,000
This lawsuit alleges the Defendants conspired to fix, raise, maintain or stabilize prices of Cathode Ray Tube Products resulting in overcharges to consumers who bought CRT Products such as Television and Computer Monitors.
Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Products means Cathode Ray Tubes of any type (e.g. color display tubes, color picture tubes, and monochrome display tubes) and finished products, which contain Cathode Ray Tubes, such as Televisions and Computer Monitors. This technology has largely been replaced by flat-panel, LCD and plasma technology. Your company is likely eligible if it purchased a CRT Product (TV or Computer Monitor) made by Defendants anytime between March 1,1995 through November 25, 2007.
The alleged defendants and co-conspirators are: Chunghwa, LG, Phillips, Panasonic, Hitachi, Toshiba, Samsung SI, Thomson, TDA, Mitsubishi, IRICO, Thai CRT, Samtel Color, Orion and Videocon.
There is no settlement deadline but expected to be in 2018.
CANADIAN CREDIT CARD SETTLEMENT – $66,530,000 (with more expected)
This lawsuit alleges that Visa and Mastercard conspired with their issuing Banks and Acquirers in setting the amount of interchange fees and imposing rules restricting merchants’ ability to surcharge or refuse high cost Visa and Mastercard credit cards.
Currently there is $66,530,000 in a settlement fund but litigation is still ongoing and we expect that number to increase. The class period is March 23, 2001 through the present and there is no claims filing deadline yet.
Canadian Optical Disk Drive Settlement – $9,000,000
This lawsuit alleges the defendants unlawfully conspired to fix, increase, and/or maintain the price of Optical Disc Drives sold in North American and elsewhere between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2010. Optical Disc Drives (ODDs) refer to a DVD-RW, DVD-ROM or COMBO drive manufactured by one or more defendants and their co-conspirators.
