Burger King agreed to pay $5 payments as settlement or provide $2 gift cards to people submitting a valid claim form. The company, however, denied any wrongdoing and said, “the court has not decided who is right.”
The deadline for filing a claim form for the payments is Jan. 19, 2018. A hearing in the case of Anderson v. Burger King Corp. will be held on April 3, 2018 to determine if the settlement is fair and to determine if fees of $185,000 should be approved as well as up to $10,000 in expenses and a $500 service award to the class representative. Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP is representing the plaintiff in this matter
Objections to the settlement are due by March 13, 2018.
