Welcome to the Information Website for the
Rose Coulter-Owens v. Time Inc. Class Action Lawsuit.
If you purchased a subscription to TIME, Fortune, or Real Simple magazines through an online website between March 31, 2009 and November 15, 2013, a class action lawsuit may affect your rights.
A lawsuit has been filed against Time, Inc. (“Time” or “Defendant”) claiming Time disclosed, without permission, information about its subscribers to third parties in violation of Michigan Privacy law.
The Court decided this lawsuit should be a class action on behalf of “all Michigan residents who, between March 31, 2009 and November 15, 2013, purchased a subscription to TIME, Fortune, or Real Simple magazines through any website other than Time.com, Fortune.com, and RealSimple.com.
The Court has not yet decided whether Defendant did anything wrong. There is no money available now, and no guarantee there will be. However, your legal rights are affected, and you have a choice to make now.
Please read this carefully. Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act.
