COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The parties in Gascho, et al. v. Global Fitness Holdings, LLC, announce that the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio has preliminarily approved a class action settlement. The Plaintiffs in the action include individuals who signed a gym membership or personal training contract between January 1, 2006, and October 26, 2012, with Global Fitness Holdings, LLC, which formerly did business as a health club chain under the name Urban Active Fitness. The Plaintiffs, represented by the Vorys and Isaac Wiles firms based in Columbus, Ohio, alleged that Global Fitness Holdings, LLC, was liable to Class Members due to improper sales, servicing, and billing practices. Global Fitness Holdings, LLC, represented by Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP, continues to deny any and all wrongdoing but has agreed to the terms of the settlement to fully resolve all issues.
Now that the Court has preliminarily approved the settlement, a notice, explanation of the settlement, and directions on how to file a claim form were mailed and emailed to Class Members on October 30, 2013. Class Members have 60 days to file a claim. Class Members may obtain additional information and file a claim at www.UrbanActiveLawsuit.com.
The settlement was reached after more than two years of litigation and months of negotiation, including mediation. The settlement provides that:
Class Members may qualify for each of the groups listed above, meaning many Class Members could be eligible to receive between $25 and $75.
The parties agreed that after years of litigation, and recognizing the cost, complexity, and risks of continued litigation, that this settlement is a fair, reasonable, and efficient way to provide monetary compensation to the class members and bring closure to all parties involved.
