What is this lawsuit about?
This is a proposed class action on behalf of customers who received and paid for student-provided services at one of the five student salon clinics operated by the Robert Fiance Beauty School in New Jersey between January 25, 2010 and March 15, 2019. One or more of the Defendants operates each of the five Robert Fiance Beauty School student salon clinics in New Jersey, where cosmetology students provide cosmetology, hairstyling and other services to the general public in exchange for certain fees. The Plaintiff contends that these fees exceeded the cost of the materials used in providing the services, in violation of New Jersey law.
The Defendants deny the Plaintiff’s allegations and claims in their entirety but have agreed to settle the lawsuit to avoid the burdens and costs of litigation.
