March 24, 1992

On this day in 1992, a Chicago judge ruled in the Milli Vanilli class action lawsuit that if a person could prove they purchased the group’s music before November 27, 1990 (the day the lip-syncing truth was released) that they would be given a $3.00 rebate.

An estimated 10 million buyers were eligible to claim a refund on everything from a concert ticket to any Milli Vanilli single. The American media was livid over the Milli Vanilli scandal and, as a result their Grammy award, was taken back, although they were allowed to keep their three American Music Awards.

Their record label, Arista Records, subsequently dropped them and deleted their album and its masters from their catalog, taking ‘Girl You Know It”s True’ forever out of print.
