Welcome to the Informational Website for the Water Ingress Settlement.
Settlement Update, March 18, 2014
On February 12, 2014 a three judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit (“Third Circuit”) affirmed the approval of the revised settlement. On March 10, 2014 the Third Circuit denied the objectors’ request for a rehearing of the order affirming the revised settlement by the three judge panel and/or all the Judges of the Third Circuit. It is possible that the objectors may apply for further review by the United States Supreme Court on or before June 8, 2014. If further review is not requested, or is denied, payments will be made pursuant to the settlement agreement.
Settlement Update, April 11, 2013
The revised settlement was approved by the District Court on December 14, 2012. Two class members retained attorneys to object to the settlement, claiming that the Magistrate Judge who approved the settlement should not have done so. They are also objecting to the part of the decision awarding Class counsel their fees and expenses. The case is now before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. It is impossible to predict the exact time frame for the appeal to be concluded, but it is likely to be concluded in 2013. In the event the settlement is upheld on appeal, the reimbursement payments will then be issued shortly thereafter.
In May 2010, Class Members were notified of the proposed settlement. Since that
time, some provisions of that settlement were challenged on appeal to the United
States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
