What is this Settlement About?

ClassPass is an online service that offers consumers access to thousands of fitness and wellness offerings through its platform on its website and mobile app. ClassPass, through a program called ClassPass Concierge, began listing on its platform beauty and wellness businesses that are not ClassPass Partners, allowing ClassPass Members the ability to request appointments at those businesses through the ClassPass platform. Plaintiffs sued Defendants alleging that they violated federal and state laws by listing businesses on the ClassPass platform through ClassPass Concierge without first obtaining the businesses’ consent. Defendants deny all of Plaintiffs’ claims and deny violating any law, and assert that, at all times, their actions and business practices have been lawful and appropriate. The Court has not yet ruled on the merits of any of Plaintiffs’ claims.

The parties negotiated a settlement on behalf of themselves and the Class Members with the assistance of a mediator. The parties’ agreement is documented in the Settlement Agreement, which the Court has preliminarily approved. A Notice of Class Action Settlement is also available here, which describes in more detail the options available to Settlement Class Members.

Who is Included in the Settlement?

The proposed settlement class (the “Settlement Class”) consists of all businesses that were listed on ClassPass through ClassPass Concierge from August 1, 2020 through June 29, 2023 and that are not ClassPass Partners.

What Does the Settlement Provide?

Plaintiffs, on behalf of themselves and Settlement Class Members, and Defendant have agreed to settle this case by dismissing this Action and discharging the Released Claims against the Releasees in exchange for injunctive relief and the Settlement Amount of $1,893,125 (the “Settlement Fund”).
