Case Summary:

This settlement resolves a class action alleging that Hercules Corporation misrepresented the value of its reloadable cash cards to be used with laundry machines Hercules provides and services by setting prices in such a way that the cards would always have a remainder balance, then charging card holders a $5 processing fee to retrieve that balance. The complaint alleged that Hercules did not clearly and conspicuously disclose this fee.
