American Psychological Association

October 2015: A federal judge granted final approval of a settlement agreement that resolves the Grossman case and In Re APA Assessment Fee Litigation. According to the terms, class members may be reimbursed for the assessment fee they paid. In addition, the APA and its practice organization agreed to rename the fee and to make clear in disclosures that the membership dues are optional.

December 2013: This case was transferred from a court in California to one in the District of Columbia where a similar consolidated case, In Re APA Assessment Fee Litigation, is pending. (Case No. 13-cv-2034, D. D.C.)

March 2013: A class-action lawsuit was filed against the American Psychological Association in March 2013 for misleading its members into thinking that payment of a special practice assessment fee was mandatory and required for membership in the APA, when, according to plaintiffs, the fee is not mandatory. (Grossman v. American Psychological Assoc., Inc. et al., Case No. 13-cv-00736, S.D. Cal.)
