A $150,000 settlement has been proposed in the class action lawsuit entitled Hanson v. MGM Resorts International, et al.,.
The case is under review in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington and is listed as case number 2:16-cv-01661-RAJ.
Class members contend that Costco, MGM did not provided customers with disclosures about inactivity fees before purchasing the gift cards.
Plaintiff David Hanson stated that he did indeed read the disclosure before purchasing the MGM gift card at Costco but was led to believe that “no inactivity fee would be assessed until the conclusion of an eighteen-month period of inactivity beginning on the date stated on each MGM Gift Card.”
Costco and MGM deny any actions of wrong doing but have agreed to settle in order to avoid further court cost.
Who should file a claim?
Anyone in the United States who purchased a MGM gift card and were assessed an inactivity fee between the dates of 10/24/2010 to 7/31/2018.
