A number of people have been asking about the authenticity of the class action Settlement involving That Suite Money. This review is to show you if true and if you’re eligible to receive the money.
About the Class Action Settlement
The class action says that Microsoft and Microsoft Canada were part of the conspiracy that was done to increase prices for some Microsoft products illegally. So a settlement was reached with the defendants and British Columbia, Quebec and Ontario courts approved it.
The settling defendants do not admit, and expressly deny, any wrongdoing or liability.
The settlement amount is dependent on a number of factors, including how many members of the Class Actions make claims for compensation. After deductions for court approved legal fees and other expenses, the maximum settlement amount that will be available as compensation to members of these Class Actions will be $409,936,100 CAD (the “Net Settlement Amount”).
