Grove Square Coffee Settlement
Plaintiff’s allege that Grove Square Coffee, through its marketing and advertising of GSC, misled consumers into believing that Grove Square Coffee Light Roast, Grove Square Coffee Medium Roast, and Grove Square Coffee Dark Roast products for use in Keurig® brewing machines contained premium, ground coffee when the products actually consisted of more than 96% instant coffee. The Court did not decide in favor of the Class Representatives or the Defendants. Instead, all parties agreed on this Grove Square Coffee settlement. This way, they avoid the cost and burden of a trial, and the Class Members can get benefits. The Class Representatives and their attorneys think the settlement is best for all Class Members.
The settlement includes all persons or consumers who purchased GSC products in Alabama, California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee any time from September 30, 2010 through September 30, 2014 in a retail store. Below are images of some of the GSC products that are included in the settlement. You are a Class Member regardless of the quantity or box count of GSC products purchased.
How Much Do I Get?
The Defendants have agreed to create a $25,000,000 Settlement Fund to settle the lawsuit. After deducting attorneys’ fees and costs, administrative expenses, and Class Representative service awards, the “Net” Settlement Fund will be used to make payments to Class Members who submit valid Claim Forms.
Payment amounts may vary based on the total number of GSC products purchased and the state in which the purchases were made. For example, Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form for purchases made in:
- Alabama will receive a maximum of $100 per Class Member regardless of the number of GSC products purchased;
- New York will receive a maximum of $275 per Class Member regardless of the number of GSC products purchased;
- California, Illinois, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee will receive a minimum of $25 per GSC product purchase, up to a maximum of three purchases, for a maximum total of $75 per Class Member.
Payment amounts may be reduced on a proportionate basis, if needed, to pay all valid claims. If, after making the additional payments described in the Settlement Agreement, money remains in the Net Settlement Fund, it will be distributed as a cy pres payment at the direction of the Court.
You must complete and submit a Claim Form by May 7, 2020.
