Plano, TX: JC Penney has reached a preliminary settlement agreement in a consumer fraud class action lawsuit brought on behalf of California customers who purchased certain JCPenney private or exclusive branded products.
The lawsuit, filed in 2012, arises from the price comparison advertising of private and exclusive branded products JCPenney used in California between November 2010 and January 2012. Plaintiff claim, among other things, that JCPenney's practices did not comply with California law. JCPenney denies the allegations and is entering into this settlement to eliminate the uncertainties, burden and expense of further protracted litigation.
If approved, according to the terms of the settlement, JCPenney will make available $50 million to settle class members' claims. Class members will have the option of selecting a cash payment or store credit. The amount of the payment or credit will depend on the total amount purchased by each class member during the class period.
The settlement agreement also states that JCPenney will implement and/or continue certain improvements to its price comparison advertising policies and practices, including periodic monitoring and training programs designed to ensure compliance with California's advertising laws.
The lawsuit, Cynthia E. Spann v. J.C. Penney Corporation, Inc., is pending in the United States District Court for the Central District of California.

I was told that a check was mailed out but it was retuned because the sent it to the wrong address. However, this was a little more than a month ago. I have not received a notice or a check..

It says in the mailed notice that the attorneys $13 million, then $191k, then $2.6 million for the third party notices, which I guess is what we got. The $2.6 million was poorly spent., apparently leading us to a site of advertisements. Or this is just some kind of scam.

The claims administrator site has the claim form that you will need to fill out and submit. The link, which works, is here: https://www.jcpenneysettlement.com/

I received a notice regarding this class action lawsuit and was Not able to access the website provided to complete a claim form. Heffler Claims Group you need to fix this issue.

The site on the mailed notice I received: www.jcpennysettlement.com is a bogus site. It contains nothing but links to other settlement services by companies who have no interest in the JC Penny settlement, except to get your money. How exactly is one supposed to be included in this class action, if we cannot register on the site? I would appreciate a response from you with the correct web url.

About time JC Penny has been 'called' on their operating tactics! Their high price structure has long been an issue that has bogged their sales for so long. It has also been quite apparent that their prices reflect more than a 30% markup as well which is unfair to their customerbase. Bravo Mrs. Spann! Bravo!
