Walgreens’ settlement over “Wal-born”

August 4, 2009

“Phoenix, Ariz. (PRWEB) August 3, 2009 — Walgreens recently settled a class action lawsuit which gives consumers the ability to claim up to $14.97 or a free flu shot without any proof of purchase or receipt necessary to submit their claim.

…The class action (Geis v. Walgreen Co. and Roper v. Walgreen Civil Action No. 2:07-cv-4238-KSH-PS) alleges that Walgreens made false claims regarding its Wal-Born products to the effect that they could treat or prevent the common cold. This is very similar in nature to the Airborne Health Formula class action settlement of 2008 (Wilson v. Airborne, Inc. et al. Case No. EDC V07-770 VAP.) You can read about the Airborne class action settlement at Top Class Actions. Both class action lawsuits ended in the Plaintiffs settling and paying cash to claimants along with agreeing to change how they market their respective products and the effects of each.”


Ford Explorer settlement called a flop

July 14, 2009

“Just 75 Ford Explorer owners — out of a possible 1 million — have redeemed discount coupons secured as part of 2007’s four-state legal settlement, according to a report filed in Sacramento County Superior Court last month.

Under terms of the deal, owners of Explorers built between 1990 and 2001 could claim $500 toward the purchase of a new Explorer or $300 to buy a different Ford, Lincoln or Mercury model. The offer, advertised in magazines, television ads and online, was meant to settle claims in California, Connecticut, Illinois and Texas that the Explorer was prone to dangerous rollovers.”
