(“eHarmony”), one of the largest online dating services in the United States, agreed to settle an automatic renewal lawsuit brought by the District Attorneys of four California Counties, as well as the City of Santa Monica (collectively “the State”). The final judgment was entered by the Superior Court for the State of California for the County of Santa Cruz. The automatic renewal lawsuit brought by the State alleged that eHarmony violated certain consumer protection laws namely, California’s Business and Professions Code and the Restore Online Shoppers Confidence Act.
