Matoesian approves Super Valu check cashing fees class action settlement
A class action filed last year against the owner of the Shop 'n Save grocery chain is over.
Madison County Circuit Judge Andreas Matoesian gave the suit's settlement the final approval Friday morning.
The class, those who were allegedly charged too much to cash checks at Super Valu Inc.'s stores between 2004 and 2009, received about $20 a member, up to $75,000.
Lead plaintiff Mary Voyles walks away with $500.
The attorneys in the case, Peter and Thomas Maag, Brian Wendler and Jeffrey Millar, take home $18,000.
The settlement was given the initial go ahead in May.
The class action was less than a year old.
The case is Madison case number 09-L-542.
