When a customer receives a lifetime warranty on a product chances are they expect it to be honored. In fact, when the warranties are alleged to have been breached, legal ramification could be on its way for the business who offered them. West, et al. v. Act II Jewelry, LLC, et al has recently come to settlement terms where by eligible Class Members can receive a cash payment from a settlement fund that weighs in at a whopping $6.7 MILLION. The suit was filed over allegations that Act II (used to be called Lia Sophia) broke a promise to customers to provide a lifetime warranty on jewelry sold by its sales advisors. However, it doesn’t end there as the allegations go on to allege that Act II made misstatements to its sales advisors regarding the closing of the business and unfairly took customer information from them. As with any story there is a flip side to this one as well as Act II denies the allegations made in the suit along with any wrongdoing whatsoever. Those who believe they are eligible for a cash payment can begin the claim filing process by going to the Lia Sophia Settlement page and clicking the Submit Claim tab.
