We’ve got a handful of settlements you won’t want to miss out on this week, including one covering people who bought virtual chips in several social casino-style games from Big Fish Games, Inc. From there, Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer users have another chance to claim a piece of a recent settlement over false and misleading advertising claims, as the deadline has been extended until mid-February. And while there isn’t a settlement – or even a lawsuit just yet – attorneys working with ClassAction.org have opened a new investigation into several refrigerator brands that may be plagued by a defect that’s keeping the fridges from cooling properly. Sound familiar? More details can be found below.
Some General Electric, Bosch and Electrolux refrigerator owners have reportedly experienced problems with their fridges not being able to cool properly – causing food to spoil and leaving owners with appliances that are essentially useless. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are now looking into these reports and trying to determine whether the issue stems from a defective linear compressor. If so, they may be able to get class action lawsuits started to help people get money back for repairs, as well as spoiled food, and to force the manufacturers to offer a fix for the problem. If this all sounds familiar, you’re right – LG just settled a lawsuit over similar claims and offered potentially thousands for affected fridge owners. If you’ve experienced cooling problems or other issues related to the linear compressor in your GE, Bosch or Electrolux fridge, read up on the investigation and share your story with us here.
If you bought Roundup® Ready-to-Use Weed & Grass Killer III, Ready-to-Use Weed & Grass Killer Plus, Weed & Grass Killer Concentrate Plus, or Weed & Grass Killer Super Concentrate but never ended up filing a claim in the recent class action settlement, you may be in luck. The deadline for filing claims has now been extended to February 16, 2021 – meaning that consumers still have a chance to recover compensation. The settlement resolves a lawsuit that claimed the statement “targets an enzyme found in plants but not in people or pets,” which was featured on the products’ labels, was false and misleading. Refund amounts vary by product, with up to $10.63 available for certain products. For claims that are supported by proof of purchase, there is no cap on the amount you can claim. To file your claim and learn more, we’ve got you covered right here.

Another settlement has been reached recently, covering those who played Big Fish Casino, Jackpot Magic Slots or Epic Diamond Slots on or before August 31, 2020. The settlement resolves claims that Big Fish Games, Inc. violated gambling laws when it sold virtual chips in its social casino-style games. Those who file claims with the settlement will receive an amount based on several factors, including the total amount spent on in-game purchases and how many people end up submitting claims. And, if you’re interested, you can receive an estimate of how much money you’re likely to receive over on the settlement website. Be sure to head there sooner rather than later though, as you only have until January 4, 2021 to file a claim. For a closer look at the settlement, we have you covered.
Throughout 2020 (and for the latter part of 2019), United Airlines reportedly began offering a 10-percent discount on flights within North America. Sounds pretty nice, right? It sure does! Unless, of course, you’re 23 or older – in which case, you’re ineligible for the offer. According to a recently filed lawsuit, United’s practice of preventing people older than 22 from reaping the benefits of the deal amounts to age discrimination under California state law. The case claims that arbitrarily limiting the offer to those between the ages of 18 and 22 also goes against the airline’s apparent commitment to diversity and inclusion and that United’s sole reason for making the offer available was to maximize profits. Head over to our blog for a closer look at the allegations being made against United.
