If You Rented Online DVDs from Netflix,
A Class Action lawsuit And A Settlement could Affect You.
There is a lawsuit against Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Walmart.com USA LLC (together called “Wal-Mart”) and Netflix, Inc. (“Netflix”) involving the price of online DVD rentals. The Class Action seeks money for current and former Netflix online subscribers. A Settlement has been reached with Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart and Netflix believe that the lawsuit has no basis. On November 22, 2011, the Court granted Netflix’s Motion for Summary Judgment, resulting in the dismissal of the lawsuit. Plaintiffs can appeal this decision.
Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act. Please read the entire Notice
The Court granted final approval of the Wal-Mart Settlement on March 29, 2012. However, an appeal has been filed by an "objector", and the parties therefore cannot predict at this time whether and when the Settlement approval will become final and settlement payments can be issued.
