June 2017: A state court judge granted final approval of the settlement agreement.
March 2017: A state court judge preliminarily approved a settlement that resolves both the Noiman and Schulert actions. The settlement, which was amended in November 2016 and February 2017, also resolves another related lawsuit: Card et al v. Joe’s Jeans, Inc.
According to the settlement terms, class members may receive one tote bag worth $55 or one t-shirt worth $68 for each product purchased. In addition, the company agreed to comply with laws that govern Made in USA marketing. A final approval hearing is scheduled for July 28, 2017.

December 2016: This action was stayed until September 1, 2017, at which time the parties will determine if a dismissal of this case is appropriate based on the outcome of other related California actions, Noiman v. Hudson Clothing and Card v. Joe’s Jeans.
July 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Hudson Clothing alleging that the company misleadingly labels Hudson jeans as “Made in USA” when, according to plaintiffs, the jeans actually contain foreign-made parts. (Schulert et al v. Hudson Clothing, LLC, Case No. 15-cv-00276, D. ME.)
