If you have a preteen girl at home, you have probably been to a Justice store on more than one occasion. What you may not know is that the retailer is involved in a class action lawsuit, and you may be owed money. You might get a postcard in the mail to notify you about the $50.8 million class action settlement involving Justice teen/tween stores. Nearly 19 million people nationwide are eligible for money back.

Customers say the retailer misled shoppers with deceptive advertising. The class action lawsuit alleges Justice misled shoppers by marking items ‘40% off’ when this price was in reality the regular price. Justice denies all of the claims and says it did nothing wrong.

Now, as part of the class action settlement, which is expected to be finalized on May 20, 2016, customers with a postcard and an access code can get $20 cash or a $30 voucher to Justice.  The deadline to submit a claim is April 4, 2016. The money and vouchers will be mailed after May 20, 2016. For more information the lawsuit and to submit a claim click here.
