Final Approval Given to $4.75 Million Vonage Settlement

Seeger Weiss LLP announced today that the US District Court of New Jersey has granted final approval to the proposed settlement of In re Vonage Marketing and Sales Practice Litigation following a fairness hearing on May 12, 2011.

This multi-district litigation (MDL) involved Vonage’s promotional “one month free” and “money back guarantee” offers and application of certain charges (disconnection, cancellation and termination fees), and subscription fees despite requests for cancellation, which allegedly violated the law. Seeger Weiss LLP partner Jonathan Shub served as co-lead counsel in this case, along with Andrew Friedman and Victoria Nugent of Cohen, Milstein, Sellers and Toll.
