We have filed a class action against Groupon on behalf of businesses that are listed on Groupon.com without their permission or consent.
According to the complaint, Groupon has created unauthorized web pages of tens of thousands of businesses. It has misappropriated the reputations and goodwill of these businesses to divert traffic to Groupon.com.
These unauthorized business listings use stock language such as "a day spa that caters to both men and women," "The stylists at this salon can also accommodate walk-ins any day of the week," or "Cyclists are in luck. this [sic] salon provides bike parking."
Groupon also lists businesses who no longer do business with the company, listing information about expired deals from years ago.
The complaint is available to the right on this page. Call (646) 290-7101 for a free consultation.
Here is an example of a business that is listed on Groupon without permission.
A class action lawsuit is a way for a group of people who have suffered similar harms to bring a single collective case and share in any potential award. You become part of a group, with far more potential power than filing a lawsuit on your own—and at no cost to you.
Filing a class action lawsuit allows us to consolidate evidence, witnesses, and litigation expenses to make the lawsuit more efficient and effective. The collective “clout” of the class is typically far more effective than an action by any individual plaintiff.
No! The attorneys work on contingency, and only get paid if the case is successful. Any fees they may be awarded are determined by the court and paid by the defendant.
You may qualify if your business was listed on Groupon without your knowledge or consent.
