Welcome to the Official Website for the “American Idol” class action litigation.
Case No. 2:07-cv-03916-JHN-VBKx (C.D. Cal.) (U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Western Division.)


You may be a Settlement Class Member if you paid for premium text message charges in connection with entering the “American Idol Challenge” aired on the show “American Idol,” and did not win a prize. You could be entitled to benefits under a class action settlement which will include a full refund of the premium text message charges you paid.

The “American Idol Challenge Game” ONLY ran during the period between February 2007 and May 2007. Viewers had the option of entering via text or online for a chance to win a prize. If you believe you participated in the “American Idol Challenge Game” and were charged premium text message fees for your entry, you may be a Class Member. You are NOT a Class Member if you participated in the game but did not pay a premium text charge, or participated in the game but entered online.

Please be aware that the “American Idol Challenge Game” is NOT the same as voting via text message for your favorite contestant and does NOT have anything to do with any DVD or video games produced or sold with the American Idol name. Voting for a contestant on American Idol does NOT make you a class member.


Your claim must be submitted by the Deadline of August 10, 2012
