eHarmony to Pay More than $2 Million to Settle California Claims
Company must improve business practices for its automatic renewal and cancellation policies.
Apparently, breaking up is hard to do, or at least expensive to do. eHarmony has been ordered to pay more than $2 million to settle a consumer protection lawsuit filed in California by four separate counties and the city of Santa Monica. According to Crowell & Moring’s Retail & Consumer Products Law Observer, eHarmony will pay up to $1 million to consumers who were enrolled in the company’s automatic subscription program between March 10, 2012 and December 13, 2016. eHarmony will pay an additional $1.28 million in civil penalties to the municipalities who sued eHarmony.
