IMPORTANT – APPEAL FILED

The District Court held a Final Approval Hearing on February 28, 2020, to decide whether to approve the Settlement and the amount of attorneys’ fees to be awarded to Class Counsel. The Settlement was approved, and the Court awarded $2,612,500 in attorneys’ fees and $58,692.40 in costs. On March 26, 2020, a Notice of Appeal was filed with the Court by Objector Kurt Oreshack.

On October 20, 2021, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued an opinion vacating the Order granting final approval of the settlement and awarding fees and costs to Class Counsel. It remanded the matter to the District Court for further proceedings. Click here to see the Ninth Circuit’s Opinion.

On December 20, 2021, the District Court issued an order setting the following deadlines: (1) no later than March 30, 2022, the parties shall file and post on this website a renewed motion for final approval of the proposed settlement agreement; (2) no later than April 22, 2022, any objections to that renewed motion shall be filed; and (3) no later than May 6, 2022, any response to any objections shall be filed. A hearing on the renewed motion for final approval is scheduled for May 20, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. Click here to see the District Court’s Order.

It is uncertain how the renewed motion for final settlement approval will be decided. If the District Court approves the proposed settlement agreement following the May 20, 2022 hearing on the renewed motion for final approval and there are no further appeals, Vouchers will be issued approximately ninety (90) days after the District Court’s approval. If an appeal of any order approving the proposed settlement is filed, then the vouchers will be issued approximately sixty (60) days after any such appeal is finally resolved.

This website will be updated to provide current Settlement information, including the date Vouchers will be issued and the date issued Vouchers will expire. Please be patient. Vouchers will be emailed to Class Members who submitted timely and valid Voucher Requests.

Welcome to the Information Website for the McKinney-Drobnis v. Massage Envy Settlement

If you were a member of a Massage Envy Spa at any time between November 4, 2006, and June 7, 2019, this class action settlement may affect your rights.

A proposed Settlement has been reached in a nationwide class action lawsuit that challenges increases in monthly Massage Envy Spa membership fees. Defendant Massage Envy Franchising, LLC (“MEF”) denies the allegations or that it did anything wrong. The Court has not decided who is right in the lawsuit but has finally approved the proposed Settlement.

If you were a member of a Massage Envy Spa at any time between November 4, 2006, and June 7, 2019, and your monthly membership fees were increased during that time, you are a Class Member and were eligible to submit a request to receive a Voucher that can be used to purchase retail products, massage sessions, enhancements, and/or facial sessions from a Massage Envy Spa. To receive a Voucher, you had to have submitted a Voucher Request no later than December 17, 2019. Per the Settlement Agreement, we can no longer accept Voucher Requests.

If you were a member of a Massage Envy Spa as of June 7, 2019, you are bound by a new membership agreement as explained here, unless you excluded yourself from the Settlement.

Your legal rights were affected whether you acted or did not act. Read the information on this settlement website carefully.
