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. The settlement provides dollar-for-dollar recovery to most settlement class members.

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.

Vonage agreed to pay $4.75 million to fund the settlement, which offers eligible class members reimbursements for certain payments made by Vonage subscribers. Class members includes anyone in the United States who subscribed to Vonage services on or before January 3, 2011, with certain exclusions, and was unable to receive a full month of free service, did not receive a full money back guarantee under certain circumstances, was charged disconnection fees after cancellation, or paid for monthly service after requesting cancellation.
