If you do not exclude yourself, you can object to the Settlement if you don’t like any part of it. You cannot ask the Court to order a different settlement; the Court can only approve or reject the settlement. If the Court denies approval, no settlement benefits will be conferred and the lawsuit will continue. If that is what you want to happen, you must object. Objections to the Settlement must be submitted in writing. If you file a timely written objection, you may, but are not required to, appear at the Final Approval Hearing, either in person or through your own attorney. If you appear through your own attorney, you are responsible for hiring and paying that attorney. All written objections shall be filed with the Clerk of Court either by mailing them to the US District Court, Eastern District of Arkansas, Attn: Courtroom Deputy, Courtroom 4D, 600 W Capitol Ave, Rm A149, Little Rock, AR 72201, or by filing them in person at any location of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas, and must be filed or postmarked on or before August 29, 2022.
All written objections must include: (a) the case name and number; (b) the name, address, telephone number of the Settlement Class Member objecting and, if represented by counsel, of his/her counsel; (c) the basis for objection; and (d) a statement of whether he/she intends to appear at the Final Approval Hearing, either with or without counsel. If your objection does not contain all of this information, is mailed to the incorrect address, or is filed or postmarked after August 29, 2022, your objection will be considered invalid and you will be deemed to have waived your objection.
