USDC-Central District of California, Case No: 2:15-cv-06457

Welcome to the Cody v. SoulCycle, Inc. Class Action Settlement Website

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT, CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA

Cody, et al. v. SoulCycle Inc., No. 2:15-cv-06457 MWF (JEMx)

If you have purchased a SoulCycle Class that expired before you used it, you may be eligible for benefits from a class action settlement.

  • A Proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit that alleges SoulCycle’s sale of indoor cycling classes (“Classes”) constitutes the sale of “gift certificates” as defined under California and federal law and that the expiration dates associated with SoulCycle’s Classes violate those laws. SoulCycle denies that its Classes could be considered “gift certificates” and denies that it did anything wrong. The Court has not decided who is right. Instead, the parties agreed to a compromise.
  • This Proposed Settlement relates to Settlement Class Members. The Settlement Class includes: (1) all persons who, at any point on or after August 25, 2014 up until February 10, 2017, purchased a SoulCycle Class that expired before it was used; and (2) all persons who have a California billing address and who, at any point on or after February 1, 2012 up until February 10, 2017, purchased a SoulCycle Class for use in California that expired before it was used.
  • Under the Proposed Settlement, if you are a Settlement Class Member, you may be eligible to receive one or two free SoulCycle Reinstated Classes (as defined below) or, in the alternative, you may elect to receive up to a maximum of $25.00 or $50.00 in cash, depending on how many Classes you purchased that expired unused and depending upon how many claims are made for the Cash Option. SoulCycle also has agreed to change certain business practices, including eliminating certain features of its Classes and augmenting its disclosures with respect to the distinction between the sale of Classes and Gift Cards.
  • Whether you act or not, your legal rights as a Settlement Class Member are affected by the Proposed Settlement. Your rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained on this website.
  • Pursuant to the Court’s Order Approving Preliminarily the Settlement of a Class Action, the only members of the judiciary excluded from the Settlement Class are “the judge to whom this case is assigned, the judge’s staff, and any member of the judge’s immediate family.” Order Approving Preliminarily the Settlement of a Class Action, Dkt 221, at 5.
