Rosenow v. Alltel Settlement Website

A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action alleging that Alltel improperly charged early termination fees to some customers in Arkansas. Alltel denies all wrongdoing.
Who’s included? The class is defined as Arkansas residents, excluding Alltel’s employees, officers, directors and agents, who paid Alltel’s early termination fee from February 15, 2001 through November 10, 2014, other than those individuals who already have requested to be excluded from the Class.
What is the settlement? Alltel has agreed to provide a refund of $70 per line on which an Early Termination Fee or Early Disconnect Penalty (“ETF”) was paid between February 15, 2001 and November 10, 2014, by customers whose billing address was in the State of Arkansas. The settlement also permits the attorneys representing the class to ask the Court to award them fees and costs of up to $1,969,946. The Court will determine the amount of any fees and costs awarded, which will not be deducted from the payments made to the class. This proposed settlement is subject to approval by the Court. Payments will be made only upon final approval by the Court.
