The purpose of this website is to inform you of the pendency of this class action and the proposed Settlement of the Action (the “Settlement”)1 and of the hearing to be held by the Court to consider the fairness, reasonableness, and adequacy of the Settlement as well as counsel’s application for fees, costs, and expenses. The Notice describes the rights you may have in connection with your participation in the Settlement, what steps you may take in relation to the Settlement and this class action, and, alternatively, what steps you must take if you wish to be excluded from the Settlement and this Action.
