The claim filing deadline was June 4, 2020, and the final approval hearing took place on July 20, 2020. After the hearing, the Court decided to approve any additional completed claims that had been filed prior to the final approval hearing. However, any claims filed after the July 20, 2020 hearing will be denied.
It will take at least two to three months, and possibly more, to process claims and calculate the amount due to each class member, and begin payments.
Because of the large size of the fund, the County will pay the claims (and attorney’s fees and costs) in three payments, a year apart. Class members will be paid in one, two or three payments, depending on how large their claim is. You will be notified with the first payment of whether and when you will receive additional payments.
