Case Name

Torczyner v. Staples, Inc
Case no. 16-cv-2965 JM (JLB)
United States District Court, Southern District of California

Case Summary

Plaintiff Neil Torczyner (the “Representative Plaintiff”) filed a lawsuit against Staples on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated. The lawsuit alleges that Staples engaged in unfair and deceptive business practices by not adequately disclosing that it utilized pro rata coupon accounting when it calculated Staples Rewards earnings in transactions involving product-specific coupons.

Staples denies each and every one of the allegations of unlawful conduct, any wrongdoing, and any liability whatsoever, and no court or other entity has made any judgment or other determination of any liability. Staples further denies that any Class Member is entitled to any relief and, other than for settlement purposes, that this Action is appropriate for certification as a class action.
