On June 5, 2020, the San Diego County Superior Court entered a Stipulated Final Judgment agreed to by Welk Resort Group, Inc. (“Welk”) and the People of the State of California. The Stipulated Final Judgment resolved allegations brought on behalf of the People of the State of California by the Attorney General of California and the District Attorney of San Diego County that Welk engaged in sales practices that violated California’s Vacation Ownership and Timeshare Act (“VOTA”), California Business & Professions Code § 11210 et seq.  Welk denied, and continues to deny, those allegations. The Stipulated Final Judgment was entered to settle a dispute without the need for litigation. It is not an admission or proof that Welk did anything wrong.

Under the Stipulated Judgment, Welk has agreed to provide Settlement Benefits to people who purchased Welk timeshares and who meet certain criteria. Two groups of people termed 1) “Known Purchasers” and 2) “Claimant Purchasers” are eligible for relief, as set forth below.
