A proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit (“Lawsuit”) known as Mike Allen, et al. v. Dolgencorp, LLC, et al., Case No. SUCV2020000385, pending in the Superior Court of White County, Georgia.
The lawsuit claims that Dollar General Corporation and Dolgencorp, LLP (“Dollar General”) deceptively and unlawfully labeled, packaged, and marketed Dollar General's Clover Valley ground coffee Products by overstating the amount of coffee each container can actually make. Plaintiffs contend that Dollar General's Clover Valley ground coffee Products do not contain enough ground coffee to make the stated number of cups when following the brewing instructions on the Product label. Dollar General has denied any wrongdoing.
