Holt v. Murphy Oil USA, Inc.
Murphy Oil USA Settlement
Case No. 3:17-cv-00911-RV

Welcome to the Murphy Oil USA Settlement Website

If you purchased a discounted or sale-price item at a Murphy USA or Murphy Express Store (excluding Missouri and Texas), on or after January 8, 2016, you may be eligible to receive a coupon from a class action settlement.

What is this lawsuit about?

The lawsuit alleges that Murphy was charging sales tax on the Murphy-funded portion of the discount on sale items starting on January 8, 2016 at all Murphy USA and Murphy Express stores in twenty-four (24) states (Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, and Virginia).  Murphy did not keep any portion of the sales tax it collected.  Murphy alleges all of the money collected from customers as sales tax was paid to state and local government taxing authorities.  Murphy denies any wrongdoing, and the Court has not ruled that Murphy did anything wrong or violated any law.

A more detailed description of the lawsuit and important court documents may be found on the Important Documents page of this website.

Who is Included?

The Court has preliminarily certified the Settlement Class, for settlement purposes only, as “all persons who purchased products at Murphy stores (excluding stores in Missouri and Texas) and were charged and paid sales tax on the full, undiscounted price of products purchased with a discount funded all or in part by Murphy, within the statutory period(s).” Certain exceptions apply as to who is a Settlement Class Member, as described in FAQ 6.
