Coleman v. CubeSmart
CubeSmart Settlement
1:16-cv-25009-JEM

Welcome to the Coleman v. CubeSmart Settlement Website

If you rented cube(s) from CubeSmart Management or CubeSmart Assest Management, you may be entitled to benefits under a class action settlement.

What is the lawsuit about?

Plaintiff filed this class action lawsuit against CubeSmart ("Defendant") alleging that it violated Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act ("FDUTPA") and various state laws by relating to monies individuals paid for participating in the Great American stored property insurance program. Defendant maintains that it did not violate FDUTPA and that individuals agreed to pay for the Great American Insurance and that they received the insurance coverage that they paid for. The parties have agreed to settle all claims about these payments that individuals made for their Great American Insurance policy.

Who is included?

The Class is defined as:

All 105,366 persons who from January 1, 2014 through March 31, 2017 in the State of Florida rented cubes from either CubeSmart Management, LLC or CubeSmart Asset Management, LLC and participated in the Great American Stored Property Insurance Program by signing Great American’s Personal Property Insurance Participation Form and making monthly payments for their stored personal property insurance (the “Settlement Class”).
