This lawsuit involves allegations that Defendants charged fees for cosmetology, hairstyling and other services provided by students to members of the public, at one of five school salon clinics operated by the Robert Fiance Beauty School in New Jersey (“the School”), that were alleged to have exceeded the cost of the materials used in the performance of those services, in violation of a New Jersey statute. If you are a citizen of New Jersey who paid a fee for student-provided hair and cosmetology services at one of the five student salon clinics operated by the School between January 25, 2010 and March 15, 2019, you are a member of the proposed class. The Defendants deny the Plaintiff’s allegations and claims in their entirety but have agreed to settle the lawsuit to avoid the burdens and costs of litigation.
The Court in charge of the case is the Superior Court of New Jersey, Camden County, and the case is pending before the Honorable Steven J. Polansky, J.S.C. The lawsuit is known as Jaime Milstead v. Robert Fiance Beauty Schools Inc., et al., and is pending under Docket No. CAML- 328-16. The person who sued is called the Plaintiff, and the parties being sued are called the Defendants.
Under the Settlement, bona fide Class Members who submit timely valid claims will receive two non-transferable $5 Service Vouchers (for a total of $10 in Service Vouchers) that can be redeemed in exchange for student-provided services at any student salon clinic operated under the name Robert Fiance Beauty School in New Jersey. Service Vouchers are one-time use, not redeemable for cash or change, and may not be used for products or goods. The Service Vouchers will be issued and dated after the Effective Date of the Settlement and will be valid for a period of one year from the Date of Issue stamped on the Service Voucher. In the event that the Settlement Fund for a given Robert Fiance clinic, net of the payments described herein, is not sufficient to enable $5 Service Vouchers (for a total of $10 in Service Vouchers) for each claim, the per-claim payment will be decreased in proportion to the total number of claims made for vouchers in that clinic. If you are an eligible Class Member and wish to receive this benefit, you must timely submit a Claim Form to the Settlement Administrator as described in the attached documents below.
