Doctor’s Associates Inc. (DAI), the franchisor of Subway Sandwich Shops, has proposed a settlement in a class-action lawsuit about the marketing of Six Inch and Footlong Subway Sandwiches.

The court has not made any findings that any of DAI’s marketing or practices were improper or unlawful.

In the settlement, DAI has agreed to certain practice changes for the benefit of all Subway customers and to pay attorney’s fees and class representative service awards. In return, those in the class action, which includes anyone who purchased a Six Inch or Footlong sandwich between Jan. 1, 2003, and Oct. 2, 2015, will give up their rights to seek certain injunctive relief claims against DAI but will not give up the right to seek other remedies.

A federal court must approve the settlement before it becomes final. The court has scheduled a settlement fairness hearing for Jan. 15, 2016, and has set Dec. 16, 2015, as the deadline for filing objections to the settlement.
