McCall, et al. v. Hercules Corp.
Hercules Laundry Card Settlement
Index No. 66810/2021

Welcome to the Hercules Laundry Card Settlement Website

IF YOU POSSESSED AND USED A HERCULES LAUNDRY CARD AFTER JANUARY 1, 2017 AND STOPPED USING YOUR HERCULES LAUNDRY CARD PRIOR TO JULY 13, 2021, YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO A PAYMENT FROM A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT.

What Is This Lawsuit About?

A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit with Hercules Corp. (“Hercules”), the Defendant in this case. Plaintiffs Richard McCall and Abraham Libman allege that Defendant misrepresented the value of its reloadable cash cards designed for use with laundry machines that are provided by and serviced by Defendant (“Laundry Cards”) by setting the reload amounts and laundry machine prices such that the Laundry Cards were guaranteed to have a remainder balance, and then charging consumers a $5 processing and handling fee to collect the unused balance, without clearly and conspicuously disclosing that fee. Hercules denies these allegations.

Who Is In The Settlement Class?

You are included if you possessed and used a Hercules Laundry Card after January 1, 2017, and stopped using your Hercules Laundry Card prior to July 13, 2021, and no longer possess your Hercules Laundry Card.

What Does The Settlement Provide?

Those included in the settlement will be eligible to receive a $3.00 cash payment if you possessed and used a Hercules Laundry Card after January 1, 2017 and stopped using the Hercules Laundry Card prior to July 13, 2021. Alternatively, you may receive a cash award of $15.00 if you: (i) were charged processing and handling fees in connection with recovering unused funds on a Hercules Laundry Card; or (ii) sent in your Hercules Laundry Card to Hercules for a recovery of unused funds, but had your card returned to you because it had less than a $5 balance.
