CALIFORNIA HOTEL & LODGING ASSOCIATION AND CLASS ACTION CAPITAL PARTNERSHIP PORTAL
California Hotel & Lodging Association 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 the country helping to recover substantial refunds on their behalf from a number of recent class action settlements. CH&LA 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.
Class Action Capital’s pricing model is simple in that we work on a commission basis whereby we receive a percentage of the client’s financial recovery and only receive our fee when our client recovers. Once you sign up for our claim management service, we will immediately get to work building and preparing a comprehensive claim.
The bottom line is we work to best position each client’s recovery from a settlement while minimizing our client’s time, use of internal resources and the risk of mistake if they were to take on claims management on their own. Please see below for a listing of applicable settlements and our claim authorization form.
Payment Card Interchange Fee Settlement –
On September 18, 2018, a Superseding and Amended Definitive Class Settlement Agreement was filed with the Court. This is a proposed $5.56–$6.26 billion settlement to provide payments to merchants who accepted Visa and MasterCard at any time from January 1, 2004. The terms of this proposed settlement would modify, amend and supersede the Definitive Class Settlement Agreement in which approval was reversed and remanded by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals on June 30, 2016.
If the Court grants preliminary approval to the new settlement, relevant documents, dates, deadlines and other information will be posted on this website. Following preliminary approval, known class members would be mailed a notice about their legal rights and the release of their claims. Information about the settlement would also be published in online media as well as in newspapers, consumer magazines and trade publications.
Potential claimants do not need to sign up with a third-party service in order to participate in any monetary relief as no-cost assistant will be available from the Class Administrator and Class Counsel during the claims filing period. However, claim forms and payments are not available at this time. If the Court grants final approval and any appeals are resolved, the Court will approve a claim form and set a claim deadline.
