Case Name: Owen v. L’Occitane, Inc.,
Case No.: BC491880
Los Angeles Superior Court
Case Summary:

L’Occitane is the latest company to fall on the wrong side of California credit card consumer protection laws, which seems to have tripped up a lot of retailers that unintentionally violated the law by asking for the zipcode of customers. The settlement is ugly providing only merchandise credit ($12.50 does not get you much at L’Occitane), and requiring a mail-in form with a very tight deadline.

Settlement Pool: Not applicable (merchandise credit only)
