Non-Disparagement Clause Class Action – Class Action Investigation

November 28, 2023 by  

Ahdoot Wolfson is investigating potential class action lawsuits against several major corporations who are burying illegal non-disparagement clauses (or “gag” clauses) deep within their “terms of use” policies that may permit them to cancel your service or take other legal action against you for posting negative comments on-line about them. You may have inadvertently agreed to such a provision if you interacted on-line.

California Civil Code section 1670.8 prohibits these non-disparagement clauses in consumer contracts and provides a civil penalty of up to two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500) for the first violation, and five thousand dollars ($5,000) for each subsequent violation.

You may be entitled to compensation if you have transacted online with the following companies:

  • Amazon
  • Bank of America
  • Cabella’s
  • Mastercard
  • Nationwide Insurance
  • TikTok
  • Ulta Beauty
  • UPS
  • US Bank
  • Zillow

If you transacted online with any of the above companies, or believe you have transacted with another company online that you believe includes a non-disparagement clause in its “terms of use,” please fill-out the form below and one of Ahdoot Wolfson’s lawyers promptly will contact you.
