Sotos LLP: Patel v. Groupon Class Action Certification and Settlement Approved

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 30, 2013) - On October 29, 2013, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice approved the settlement of a class action against Groupon Inc. on behalf of Canadian customers.

Under the settlement, persons who purchased or otherwise acquired Groupon vouchers prior to March 8, 2013, with some exceptions, will be able to use their Groupon vouchers after any stated expiry date up to the amount of the purchase price of the vouchers. Those customers who are not able to redeem their vouchers because, for example, the business is no longer operating may claim for payment of the purchase price.

Groupon will deposit $535,000 into the settlement fund for eligible claimants; counsel fees, administration fees and taxes will be deducted from the fund. Any unclaimed balance will be returned to Groupon.
