Welcome to the Riddex® Consumer Settlement website.
This website contains information regarding a proposed class action settlement
that has been preliminarily approved by the Court in In re: Global Concepts
Limited, Inc. d/b/a Global TV Concepts, Ltd., Case No. 1:12-cv-23064-MGC.
NATURE OF THE SETTLEMENT
The Settlement resolves a lawsuit over advertising and marketing claims made by
Global Concepts Limited, Inc. d/b/a Global TV Concepts, Ltd. (“Global”),
regarding the effectiveness and coverage of the Riddex Device for repelling
certain household pests. The Court has
not decided in favor of Plaintiffs or Defendant. Instead, both sides agreed to a
settlement. That way, they avoid the cost of a trial, and the Settlement Class
Members receive relief now rather than years from now, if at all. The Class
Representatives and their attorneys believe the settlement is in the best
interest of the Settlement Class. Global denies any wrongdoing and any
liability whatsoever, and no court or other entity has made any judgment or
other determination of any liability.
THE SETTLEMENT CLASS
The settlement class includes "Each person in the United States and its
territories who from January 1, 2006 to August 31, 2013 purchased a
Riddex brand electromagnetic pest repelling aid device (models Riddex Plus
(marketed as "Riddex Pulse"), Riddex Power Plus, Riddex Quad, or Riddex Power
Guardian) other than for resale or distribution. Excluded from the Settlement
Class are officers, directors, and employees of Global and their parents and
subsidiaries, as well as judicial officers and employees of the Court." If you
are a member of the settlement class, your rights and options - and the
deadlines to exercise them - are explained in the Class Notice.
