Welcome to the Information Website for the Legg v. Spirit Airlines, Inc. Settlement and the Rosen v. Spirit Airlines, Inc. Settlement.
If you used an airport kiosk for a transaction with Spirit Airlines and paid for services using a credit card or debit card between August 29, 2012 and October 28, 2015, you may be entitled to benefits under a class action settlement.
Plaintiffs allege that willfully printing transaction receipts that include more than the last 5 digits of a person’s card number violates the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1681c(g)(1), et seq. (“FACTA”). Plaintiffs sued Spirit for allegedly willfully violating FACTA in the lawsuits identified above. Spirit denies Plaintiffs’ allegations and denies any wrongdoing whatsoever. The Court has not ruled on the merits of Plaintiffs’ claims or Spirit’s defenses. By entering into the Settlement, Spirit has not conceded the truth or validity of any of the claims against it.
A proposed settlement will provide a total of $7,500,000 (the “Settlement Fund”) to fully settle and release claims of persons for whom airport kiosks printed a Spirit point-of-sale credit card or debit card transaction receipt that included more than the last 5 digits of a person’s card number during the time period set forth above (the “Settlement Class”).
The Settlement Fund shall be used to pay all amounts related to the Settlement, including awards to Settlement Class Members who submit a valid and timely claim form to receive payment (“Claim Form”), attorneys’ fees and costs to attorneys representing Plaintiffs and the Settlement Class (“Class Counsel”), any service award for Plaintiffs, and the costs of notice and administration of the Settlement. Class Counsel estimate that Settlement Class Members who timely submit a valid Claim Form will receive around $265 subject to a pro rata distribution, up to a maximum of $1,000.
Your rights and options, and the deadlines to exercise them, are explained on this website. Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act. Read this website carefully.
The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the Settlement. Payments will be made if the Court approves the Settlement and after any appeals are resolved. Please be patient.
