This website contains information regarding a proposed class action settlement that has been preliminarily approved by the Court in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio entitled Ehlers v. Restoration Hardware, Inc., Case No. 2:10-cv-01147-MHW-NMK and Giordano v. Restoration Hardware, Inc., Case No. 2:11-cv-00614-MHW-NMK (Collectively, the "Lawsuits").

NATURE OF THE SETTLEMENT

Plaintiffs Scott Ehlers, Frank Harmon, and Susan Giordano allege, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, that Restoration Hardware violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, as amended (“FACTA”), 15 U.S.C. §1681, et seq. by issuing receipts at the point of sale that contained more than the last five numbers of customers’ credit or debit card and/or the card’s expiration date. Each member of the Settlement Class is eligible to receive, at the class member’s choice, either a discount certificate for 25% off any purchase from Restoration Hardware up to $1,000.00 or, in the alternative, a gift card in the amount of $20.00.
