Albert Viesse, et al. v. Saar's Inc., et al.
Saar's Settlement
Case No. 17-2-07783-6 SEA

Welcome to the Saar's Settlement Website

 

You may be part of a pending class action lawsuit against Saar's Inc. ("Saar's"), and your legal rights may be affected by the lawsuit and a proposed Settlement of the lawsuit.  

 

What is this lawsuit about? 

A class action lawsuit is pending against Saar's.  The lawsuit alleges that Saar's willfully violated a federal law (known as the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act or "FACTA", 15 U.S.C. §1681c(g)) by printing on customer credit transaction receipts the expiration date of its customer's credit card or debit card.   Saar's disputes the class action allegations and denies that it willfully violated FACTA.  The Court has not yet decided in favor of either the Class or Saar's.  Instead, both sides have agreed upon a proposed Settlement of the class action lawsuit to avoid the uncertainty and cost of a trial, and to provide benefits to Class members.  Saar's does not admit any violation of FACTA by agreeing to the proposed Settlement.

A more detailed description of this lawsuit and important court documents are available on the Key Documents page of this website. 

 

Who is included?

You are a member of the Class if you are an individual who used a personal credit card or debit card for a credit transaction at any Saar's or Super Saver Foods stores during the period July 20, 2014 through July 18, 2016, and you were provided an electronically printed receipt on which was printed the expiration date of your credit card or debit card.
