There is a proposed Settlement of a class action in the District Court for the Northern District of Ohio titled Shaun Brandewie, et al. v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., Case Number 1:14-CV-00965.
Important Announcement: Settlement benefits in the form of an electronic gift card were distributed to approved claimants in April 2018.
The lawsuit claims that Wal-Mart at times gave a refund or credit on a product purchased from a Wal-Mart or Sam’s Club retail location within the United States or online from Walmart.com or Samsclub.com for delivery within the United States, and the amount of sales tax refunded or credited was less than the full amount of sales tax paid at the time the product was purchased.
Wal-Mart denies any and all liability or wrongdoing with respect to the claims alleged in the lawsuit, but desires to settle the case because a settlement will avoid the risk, expense and distraction of continued litigation.
