SUPERIOR COURT OF FULTON COUNTY
STATE OF GEORGIA
Case No. 2017CV288354
If you used a personal credit card or debit card for any transaction at any of the Philips Arena Hawks Shops during the period August 1, 2014 through January 24, 2016, you could get a payment from a class action settlement.
A Federal Court authorized this notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
A settlement (“Settlement”) has been proposed in the class action lawsuit referenced above pending in the Superior Court of Fulton County, State of Georgia, Case No. 2017CV288354 (“Action”).
- The lawsuit alleges that Hawks willfully violated a federal law (known as the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act or FACTA, 15 U.S.C. §1681c(g)) by printing on customer receipts the expiration date of its customer’s credit card or debit card. Hawks disputes the class action allegations and denies that it willfully violated FACTA. The Court has not yet decided in favor of either the Class or Hawks. Instead, both sides have agreed upon a proposed Settlement of the class action lawsuit to avoid the uncertainty and cost of a trial, and to provide benefits to Class members. Hawks does not admit any violation of FACTA by agreeing to the proposed Settlement.
- If approved by the Court, the Defendant will provide a non-reversionary cash fund of $250,000.00. If you are a Class Member, you may be entitled to an amount up to $100.00. To obtain a payment, you must complete and submit a valid Claim Form by the deadline of June 8, 2018.
