If You Were Sent a Text Message from Hollister Co., Abercrombie & Fitch Co., Gilly Hicks and/or abercrombie kids, You May Be Entitled to a Payment from a Class Action Settlement.

The purpose of this website is to inform you about a proposed Settlement of this class action lawsuit and about all of your options before the Court decides whether to give Final Approval to the Settlement.

A $10 million Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about whether J.M. Hollister, LLC d/b/a Hollister Co. and/or Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (the “Defendants”) sent text messages to wireless telephone numbers without prior express written consent of the recipients in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 (“TCPA”). The Defendants deny the allegations in the lawsuit and the Court has not decided who is right.

The Settlement offers payments to Settlement Class Members who file valid claims. Additionally, the Defendants have agreed to provide training concerning TCPA compliance to key managers responsible for text communications to customers.
