Lee v. The Body Shop Settlement

Henry Lee v. Buth-Na-Bodhaige, Inc., d/b/a The Body Shop, S.D.N.Y.
United States District Court, Southern District of New York, Case No: 1:16-cv-01104-LTS

Welcome to the Lee v. The Body Shop Settlement Website

UPDATE (1/23/18): Due to certain procedural issues that arose in the federal court, the Class Representative and Class Counsel determined that it was in the interest of the Settlement Class to dismiss the action pending in the United States District Court and to re-file the class action lawsuit in the Circuit Court of St. Clair County, Illinois.

The Circuit Court of St. Clair County granted approval of the Motion for Final Approval Settlement on December 20, 2017.

After the Court granted approval for the Motion for Final Approval, an appeal was filed. Settlement benefits cannot be distributed until the appeal is fully resolved. We anticipate that the appeals process will take at least several months.

The website and settlement information line will be updated with further information when additional information is available.
