Provide Feedback to the Court

Survivor and Descendant Class Members have the right to tell the court what they think about the proposed settlement.

This is completely optional. Participating in the settlement approval process will not impact any Class Member’s ability to receive compensation. For example, someone can object to the agreement and still receive compensation if the agreement is approved.

There are two ways to participate: (1) write your views and share them in advance; or (2) speak your views during the approval hearing in September. You can do either of these, both, or neither.

Tell the court what you think in writing before the approval hearing.

Your written statement should include:

  • Name
  • Contact information
  • Statement that you are a Class Member (e.g. I am a member of the Survivor Class or I am a member of the Descendant Class)
  • Whether you support or object to the proposed settlement agreement. You can include reasons for your opinion, if you want, but you do not have to.

Written statements must be submitted by August 20, 2021.

Statements can be sent by:
