Settlement Reached in Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar Class Action Lawsuit
A preliminary settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against OSI Restaurant Partners, owners of Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar. The class action lawsuit alleged that Fleming’s restaurants used a credit card form that included a printed space for filling in the telephone numbers of its credit card customers in violation of California Civil Code section 1747.08(a)(3), which specifically prohibits the use of forms produced during credit card transactions that include a preprinted space for personal identification information.
OSI denies the allegations, but has decided to settle the class action lawsuit, entitled Allred v. OSI Restaurant Partners, LLC, to avoid further litigation. Under the terms of the settlement, Fleming’s Steakhouse has agreed to reward a one-time $50 voucher to customers who dined in a Fleming’s establishment in California, between June 7, 2010 and February 23, 2011, and used a personal credit card to pay their bill.
Class members who submit a claim form by October 2, 2012 will be eligible to participate in the settlement. Anyone who wants to object or exclude themselves from the settlement must do so by this date. The Final Approval Hearing is scheduled for October 26, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. in Department C-73 of the San Diego Superior Court.
