What is this Lawsuit about?
A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against magazine publisher Maxim Inc. The class action lawsuit claims that Maxim violated Michigan's Preservation of Personal Privacy Act between May 15, 2016 and July 30, 2016 by disclosing information related to its customers' magazine subscriptions to third parties. The Defendant denies that it violated any law. The Court has not determined who is right. Rather, the Parties have agreed to settle the lawsuit to avoid uncertainties and expenses associated with ongoing litigation.
Who is Included?
You may be a member of the Settlement Class if you have a Michigan street address and subscribed directly to Maxim for receipt of a Maxim magazine to be delivered to a Michigan street address between May 15, 2016 and July 30, 2016.
What does the Settlement provide?
A Settlement Fund has been created totaling $228,165.00 from which Class Member payments, the cost to administer the Settlement, attorneys' fees (inclusive of litigation costs), and awards to the Class Representatives will be paid. Those included in the Settlement will receive a proportionate share of the Settlement Fund, which Class Counsel anticipates will be approximately $52.
