CABELA’S CALL RECORDING SETTLEMENT
A proposed $3,850,000 class action settlement has been reached in the lawsuit Saunders, et al. v. Cabela’s Wholesale, Inc., San Francisco County Superior Court Case No. CGC-14-537095. The lawsuit claims that Cabela’s Wholesale, Inc. recorded telephone calls of persons calling its toll free customer-service lines without telling callers that the calls may be recorded, allegedly in violation of California law. Defendant has denied the claims. Nonetheless, Defendant and the Class Representatives have agreed to settle the dispute to avoid the uncertainty and costs of further litigation and trial.
