The Court will consider your objection and decide whether to overrule it or change the settlement agreement. You will only be allowed to appear at the hearing and argue your objection to the court if your objection states you wish to do so.
If the court accepts or rejects your objection, you remain a member of the class and will be bound by the settlement agreement, and will get your share of the settlement. (This means you’re giving up claims against the LASD for strip searches covered by this case.)
