LiveDeal Settles Consumer Fraud Class Action Lawsuit

This is a settlement for the lawsuit.

Las Vegas, NV: LiveDeal, Inc, has finalized a settlement in the consumer fraud class action lawsuit Global Education Services, Inc. v. LiveDeal, Inc., et al. Final approval of the settlement occurred on May 27, 2013, marking the formal end of the litigation. Dismissal of the lawsuit is pending.

Global Education Services, Inc., the lead plaintiff, filed the complaint on June 6, 2008 challenging the company's disclosure practices under its "activator check" promotion. Specifically, the plaintiff claimed that consumers were not adequately informed that cashing "activator checks" would result in the purchase of the company's advertising services.

The complaint was brought on behalf of residents of Washington state who cashed an activator check after June 6, 2004. LiveDeal discontinued the promotional program in October 2006.

The parties have now mutually agreed to a settlement. As is typical, the lawsuit was conditionally certified for settlement purposes only without concession by either party as to the legal propriety of class certification.
