Dr. David S. Muransky v. Godiva Chocolatier, Inc.

Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois
Case No. 2020 CH 7156

If you made a purchase at a Godiva store in the United States using a credit card or debit card between April 6, 2013 and November 20, 2015, you may be entitled to benefits under a class action settlement.

Final Approval has been granted, but has been appealed. The date the appeal will be decided is not known. Please check back to this website for updates as the appeal will delay the approved payout to the class. If you have moved or plan on moving, please update your address by contacting the claims administrator at admin@GodivaFactaSettlement.com.

A Court authorized this Notice.  This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

 You may have previously received a notice about this settlement in 2016, when the case was pending before the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Case No. 15-cv-60716-WPD. That case was recently re-filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, Case No. 2020 CH 7156. If you already submitted a valid claim in response to the prior notice, you do not need to file a new claim to receive a payment here.
