Here are answers to frequently asked questions about the settlement. Detailed information about the settlement is contained in the Class Notice and Settlement Agreement.

If you do not find an answer to your question here, please contact us directly.

What is this case about?

The lawsuit claims that Jerome’s violated California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act and was unjustly enriched by selling furniture products that contained bonded leather (the “Products”) that were not fit for use as furniture because the bonded leather would crack and peel after normal use.

Jerome’s denies all of the Plaintiff’s claims and says that the Products would have performed as expected if properly used.

Who is a class member in this settlement?

You are included in the Settlement Class if you purchased bonded leather furniture from Jerome’s at any time from December 27, 2014 until February 7, 2020 and have not already received a full refund for the purchase price of the furniture.

What does the Settlement provide?

The Settlement will provide partial refunds paid via Jerome’s gift cards. The gift cards are fully transferrable, will never expire, and may be redeemed for merchandise or cash at any Jerome’s location.

A 12% refund of the purchase price is available upon verification that the Product(s)’ bonded leather has exhibited cracking and peeling following normal use.

A 5% refund of the purchase price is available if you submit a claim without a verification of cracking and peeling of the bonded leather, or if the Claims Administrator denies the 12% refund.

More details are provided in the Settlement Agreement, which is available here.
