Noom Sued For Unauthorized Auto-Renewals Now Has Confidential Settlement Talks Dec 17

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 10 – In a case against Noom for, among other things, its luring of consumers into automatic renewals without their knowledge or consent, Noom made a number of motions to dismiss.     

        On August 5, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lorna G. Schofield held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  While Judge Schofield grants a few of Noom's requests, dismissing causes of action asserting conversion under New York, Ohio, Texas, Alabama and DC law, and a portion of the California state law claims, she left fully 274 causes of actions standing.

On August 11 the assigned Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker held a discovery conference. The plaintiffs' lawyers, citing their work in another class action in EDNY, expressed skepticism at Noom's discovery productions; there will be briefing about depositions.

Judge Parker, who started slightly later due to being on the phone with the Chief Judge, ended the proceeding by telling the parties that now masks are required in SDNY even for the vaccinated, and that the same might - might - become true for COVID tests. How it would be administered was and is not clear.

On December 10, Judge Parker set a "telephone settlement status conference" for December17 at 11 am, with "the same security code as today's conference." Watch this site.

The case is Nichols, et al. v. Noom Inc., et al., 20-cv-3677 (Schofield / Parker)
