From Vear v. Cellco Partnership d/b/a Verizon Wireless A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit brought against Verizon Wireless. The lawsuit alleged that Verizon Wireless violated California Civil Code § 1747.08 by requesting and recording non-Verizon Wireless telephone numbers of store customers in California who paid for purchases with a credit card. Verizon Wireless denies any wrongdoing and any liability whatsoever. To avoid the expense and inconvenience associated with the Action, the parties have concluded that it is in their respective best interests to settle the Action. The settlement was reached through lengthy arms-length negotiations between the parties. The San Diego County Superior Court has determined that the Action should proceed as a class action, and granted preliminary approval of the settlement, subject to a final approval hearing.

The Settlement provides that Verizon Wireless will provide all Settlement Class members who have not chosen to opt out of the settlement, and who submit an accurately completed and timely delivered Claim Form, with a non-transferable Verizon Wireless Voucher that will provide a five dollar ($5.00) discount off wireless accessories, excluding handsets, mobile devices, and services, in a single transaction from any Verizon Wireless store or kiosk in California for a period of ninety (90) days from the date issued.
