Payment Sent to Hearst Class Members
On July 26, 2019, payments were sent to class members as part of the $50 million settlement in Edwards v. Hearst Communications, Inc. The settlement was approved by Judge Analisa Torres of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on April 24, 2019, and provides for cash payments to class members of $98.72 each.
“We are thrilled that the settlement proceeds are being distributed,” said Philip L. Fraietta, one of the firm’s partners handling the matter. “This is a terrific result that will put real money into the pockets of Hearst magazine subscribers.”
