Grubhub Settles D.C. Suit

(Washington, DC) — Grubhub is agreeing to fork over three-and-a-half million dollars to settle a suit filed by the Washington, DC Attorney General’s Office. The Illinois-based food delivery service was taken to court by Attorney General Karl Racine for charging customers hidden fees and using deceptive marketing techniques to increase profits. Under the settlement, customers with an active Grubhub account will receive account credits. The remaining funds will be collected by the District as a civil penalty. In the suit, Racine said Grubhub violated the District’s consumer protection laws.
