Hahn, et al. v. Massage Envy Franchising, LLC, Case No. 3:12-cv-00153
(County of San Diego Case No. 37-2011-00102080-CU-BT-CTL)
Former members of Massage Envy Spas in California have sued in federal court challenging Massage Envy’s policy of forfeiting or expiring members’ prepaid massages when members cancel their membership or fail to make timely payments. They allege that California law does not permit Massage Envy to charge its members for prepaid massages, and give nothing in return. The Lawsuit is asking for refunds or reinstatement of forfeited prepaid massages, and to prevent Massage Envy from forfeiting prepaid massages in the future. Massage Envy contends the language in the membership agreements used by its franchises are entirely consistent with California law.
The United States District Court for the Southern District of California has approved Jeffrey Krinsk and Mark Knutson of Finkelstein & Krinsk LLP as counsel for a Class of people that have the following characteristics:
All California residents, from December 7, 2007 to the present, who were enrolled in a Massage Envy membership program and who (a) forfeited prepaid massages because they cancelled their Massage Envy membership or (b) forfeited prepaid massages because they did not keep their membership current by making timely payments.
