The Class is made up of consumers who purchased any color of Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Pressed Pigment Palettes in the United States on or before Aug. 15, 2021.

A class action lawsuit alleged the product was falsely advertised as eyeshadow, when the fine print on the packages warns consumers not to use the product around the eyes. The plaintiffs allegedly suffered injury such as eye irritation.

Neuriva Supplements False Advertising $8M Class Action Settlement

If you purchased Reckitt Benckiser’s Neuriva supplements, you may be eligible to make a claim in a class action settlement, regardless of whether you have proof of purchase.

Plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit claimed the defendants advertised the Neuriva products as being clinically and scientifically “proven,” when there is no clinical evidence the supplements can increase or support brain performance.

Dominion National Data Breach $4.7M Class Action Settlement

Those who may have had their information compromised during a data breach at Dominion National may qualify for some compensation.

The settlement benefits a Class of consumers whose personal information was stored on Dominion National’s computer network and may have been accessed during a security incident. Those identified as Class Members should have received an email or postcard notice about the settlement.

Plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit alleged Dominion National did not adequately protect their personal information during the data breach.

Dominion announced the breach June 21, 2019, but the attack may have begun as early as Aug. 25, 2010.

Information such as names, birthdates, Social Security numbers, and more may have been accessed.

Missouri Walmart Prepaid Wireless $600K Class Action Settlement

The settlement benefits anyone who purchased a prepaid wireless telecommunications service product from a Walmart or a Sam’s Club store in Missouri between Jan. 1, 2019, and Jan. 31, 2020.

The class action lawsuit accused Walmart of overcharging for the prepaid products via its prepaid wireless telecommunications service charge.

Deloitte Consulting $4.95M Data Breach Class Action Settlement

The settlement those who were notified by either the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, the Illinois Department of Employment Security, or the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment that their personal information was compromised during a Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) data security incident between May 18 and 21, 2020.

According to the plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit, the agencies hired Deloitte to create websites to be used in facilitating paying PUA benefits. However, certain personal information of about 237,000 people is believed to have been visible on the sites.

Cryptsy Cryptocurrency Class Action Settlement

Cryptsy account holders who were unable to access their cryptocurrency may be eligible to receive additional compensation after a “claw-back” lawsuit resulted in additional funding for the Class.

The Class is made up of anyone who was a Cryptsy account holder between Nov. 1, 2015, and June 2, 2017, and held Cryptsy Bitcoins, alternative cryptocurrencies, or other forms of money they were unable to access, trade, or otherwise obtain.

Plaintiffs had alleged Project Investors Inc., doing business as Cryptsy and Paul Vernon, stole account holders’ cryptocurrency and converted it for their own use; they also alleged certain defendants had become unjustly enriched.

The initial claim deadline was April 17, 2017. However, there is a second deadline on the horizon.

Those who already made an approved claim do not need to do anything. However, those who did not make a claim in the first recovery or had their claim denied may file a new or supplementary claim.

ShopKeep, Lightspeed Commerce USA OT $1.775M Class Action Settlement

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is settling claims it overcharged for tuition during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Class is made up of all Rutgers students who paid the university fees for the spring 2020 semester and did not get a refund.

The plaintiffs claim they were overcharged when the school switched to remote learning because of the pandemic and argue they should have been charged less since they weren’t able to make use of the full benefits of on-campus classes.

Those who are no longer enrolled will receive a check unless they file an enrollment form and select payment via Venmo or PayPal.

Kaiser Healthcare Race Discrimination $11.5M Class Action Settlement
