Your Legal Rights and Options in This Settlement
Submit a Proof of Claim and Release

This is the only way to be eligible to receive a payment from the Settlement. If you are a Settlement Class Member, you will be bound by the Settlement as approved by the Court, and you will give up any Released Claims that you have against the Released Persons, so Lead Counsel believes it is in your interest to submit a Proof of Claim and Release Form. Proof of Claim and Releases must be postmarked no later than April 8, 2021.

Payments to eligible claimants will be made only after any appeals are resolved, and after the completion of all claims processing. Please be patient, as this process will take some time to complete.
