What is the Litigation About?

The Lawsuit alleges that defendant Snap RTO LLC (“Defendant”) entered into rental-purchase agreements with certain California consumers that included provisions providing for payment of a Processing Fee and/or Nonsufficient Funds Fee (“NSF Fee”) that did not comply with California law. The Lawsuit alleges that Defendant violated the Karnette Rental-Purchase Act (Cal. Civ. Code § 1812.620 et seq.), and certain other provisions of California consumer protection laws.


Am I a Class Member?

All individuals who, between November 12, 2016, and March 10, 2021, entered into a rental-purchase agreement with Snap RTO LLC. in the State of California that included provisions providing for payment of a Processing Fee and/or a Nonsufficient Funds Fee (“NSF Fee”). Excluded from the Class are persons who have entered into an agreement with Snap that effects a release of claims that would otherwise be within the scope of this action. Also excluded from the Class are all employees of Defendants, all employees of Plaintiff’s counsel, and the judicial officers to whom this case is assigned.


What Does the Settlement Provide?

In full and complete settlement of the claims of the Class Members who do not exclude themselves, Defendant will pay the principal amount of $5,257,376.50. The Settlement Amount, plus any interest thereon, will be used to pay Class Counsel’s attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses (as approved by the Court), any service payments that the Court may award to the Class Representatives, the expenses of settlement administration (including class notice), and the settlement payments or credits to or for the benefit of Class Members who qualify for inclusion in the Payment Group or the Credit Group. If any funds are remaining by reason of uncashed settlement checks or otherwise, the remaining amount will be paid to one or more cy pres recipients approved by the Court, or as otherwise directed by the Court.
