Gerstenhaber v. Galleria Fitness Club, LLC, d/b/a Powerhouse Gym Fort Lauderdale

Case No. 0:18-cv-62108-CM (S.D Fla.)

If You Were Sent a Text Message from Galleria Fitness Club, LLC, d/b/a Powerhouse Gym Fort Lauderdale Defendants, You May Be Entitled to a Payment from a Class Action Settlement.

A federal court authorized this Notice. You are not being sued. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

A Settlement  has been reached in a class action lawsuit alleging that Defendant Galleria Fitness Club, LLC, d/b/a Powerhouse Gym Fort Lauderdale (“Galleria Fitness”) sent text messages to mobile telephone numbers without prior express written consent of the recipients in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 (“TCPA”). Defendants deny the allegations and any wrongdoing. The Court has not decided the merits of the claims.

The Settlement offers payments to Settlement Class Members who file valid Claims. 

Your legal rights are affected whether you act or do not act.


If you are a member of the Settlement Class, you must submit a completed Claim Form to receive a payment. If the Court approves the Settlement and it becomes final and effective, and you remain in the Settlement Class, you will receive your payment by check. Please see Frequently Asked Question #8

You may request to be excluded from the Settlement and, if you do, you will receive no benefits from the Settlement, please see Frequently Asked Question #10

Write to the Court if you do not like the Settlement, please see Frequently Asked Question #16

Ask to speak in court about the fairness of the Settlement.

You will not receive a payment if you fail to timely submit a completed Claim Form, and you will give up your right to bring your own lawsuit against Defendants about the Claims in this case.

These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in the Long Form Notice

The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the Settlement. If it does, and after any appeals are resolved, benefits will be distributed to those who submit qualifying Claim Forms. Please be patient.
