About This Settlement
A settlement has been reached between Ferrara Candy Co. (“Defendant”) and Thomas Iglesias (“Class Representative” or “Plaintiff”), individually and on behalf of the Settlement Class. The settlement resolves a class action lawsuit about allegations that Defendant packages its boxed candy products in oversized packaging with nonfunctional empty space.
