On August 5, 2014, the Court issued a final order and judgment approving the class settlement.
On October 24, 2016, the Court issued an order extending the disbursement date for property damage claims submitted by August 5, 2016. The Defendants have agreed to accelerate part of the future funding obligation in order to pay the second-year claims at a higher rate than what would have been paid had the funding obligation not been accelerated.
To allow time for the additional funds to be placed into the settlement fund, and for Epiq to re-calculate the payment amounts so that claims can be paid at a higher rate, the disbursement deadline has been extended by two weeks to November 14, 2016.
This website will be updated periodically with new developments concerning the settlement.
