UPDATE 11/2/2021: The Court-ordered claim filing period has now ended, and the settlement has received final approval from the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. The claims that were timely submitted are being reviewed. We will post a further update when we have a firm date by which payments for valid claims will be mailed, but we anticipate that the payments will be made in approximately the end of February 2022.
Subject to Court Approval, the Settlement will provide up to $10,092,600 (less legal fees and costs) to pay claims from those who properly submit Claim Forms by September 30, 2021.
