Higgins v. TV Guide Magazine, LLC

U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan  Case No. 2:15-cv-13769-SJM-MKM

            

IF YOU PURCHASED A SUBSCRIPTION TO TV GUIDE MAGAZINE OR TV WEEKLY BETWEEN OCTOBER 26, 2009 AND OCTOBER 26, 2015, YOU MAY BE PART OF A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT.   


• A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against magazine publisher TV Guide Magazine, LLC, who is the Defendant. The class action lawsuit involves whether TV Guide disclosed its customers' subscription information to third parties in violation of Michigan privacy law.


• You are included in the Settlement if you had a Michigan street address and purchased a subscription to TV Guide Magazine or TV Weekly from TV Guide between October 26, 2009 and October 26, 2015.

• Those included in the Settlement will be eligible to receive a pro rata portion of the Settlement Fund, which Class Counsel anticipates to be approximately $50-100 per Settlement Class Member. TV Guide has also agreed that, for a period of four (4) years following Preliminary Approval, it will not disclose any of its Michigan customers' subscription information to any third-parties without the prior express written consent of the affected subscribers.

• TV Guide denies it violated any law and/or committed any wrongdoing. The Court has not adjudicated TV Guide's potential liability. Rather, the Parties have agreed to settle the lawsuit to avoid the uncertainties and expenses associated with ongoing litigation.
