UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA

MONICA RAEL AND ALYSSA HEDRICK, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, v. 
THE CHILDREN'S PLACE, INC.  Case No. 16CV0370-GPC-JMA

IF YOU SHOPPED AT ANY U.S. THE CHILDREN’S PLACE STORE OR ONLINE AT CHILDRENSPLACE.COM BETWEEN FEBRUARY 11, 2012 AND JANUARY 28, 2020, YOU MAY BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE VOUCHERS OF VARIOUS VALUES, E.G., $6, $12, OR $18, USABLE AT THE CHILDREN’S PLACE ON FUTURE PURCHASES.

A federal court authorized this Notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

A settlement (“Settlement”) has been proposed in the class action lawsuit referenced above pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California (“Action”). If the Court gives final approval to the Settlement, The Children’s Place, Inc. (“TCP”) will provide, for each Class Member who properly and timely completes and submits a Claim Form, one or more Vouchers good for a purchase either in a The Children’s Place store in the United States or online at www.childrensplace.com, for (i) $6 off a purchase (no minimum purchase) or (ii) 25% off a purchase (of the first $100), subject to the additional conditions explained later in the Notice.

Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act. Read the notice carefully.

You may, but are not required to, speak at the Fairness Hearing about any objection you filed to the Settlement. If you intend to speak at the Fairness Hearing, you must also submit a “Notice of Intention to Appear” indicating your intent to do so.

You will not receive a Voucher under the Settlement. You will also give up your right to object to the Settlement, and you will not be able to be part of any other lawsuit about the legal claims in this case.

N/A

These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in more detail under the Frequently Asked Questions tab of this website.

The Court in charge of this Action has preliminarily approved the Settlement and must decide whether to give final approval to the Settlement. The relief provided to Class Members will be provided only if the Court gives final approval to the Settlement and, if there are any appeals, after the appeals are resolved in favor of the Settlement. Please be patient.
