On Friday, April 28, 2017 the court approved the final settlement in this matter. All claims, counterclaims, cross-claims and Third Party Claims have been dismissed. A copy of the settlement approval order may be accessed below.
The settlement provides for the payment of $17.5 million. After payment of legal fees, the Class Proceedings Fund levy and administrative costs, the balance will be distributed to all class members who submit a valid claim form by July 31, 2017, which is the Claim Deadline. Claims submitted after that date will not be accepted.
A notice respecting the settlement approval, and explaining how to make a claim will be sent to the last known addresses for all class members.
