INFORMATION ABOUT THE COURT’S ORDER GRANTING PRELIMINARY APPROVAL OF NEW CLASS SETTLEMENT WITH THE VNA DEFENDANTS

On June 17, 2024, the Court issued an Order granting preliminary approval of a new class settlement with the VNA Defendants, which would add additional funds to the Settlement Fund for those who are eligible VNA Class Members. A copy of the Order can be found HERE. On June 20, 2024, the Court issued an order providing a schedule for addressing the proposed Class settlement with VNA defendants.  A copy of the schedule can be found HERE.

 

The new VNA settlement applies to VNA settlement Class Members.  You are a VNA Class Member if for any period of time between February 10, 2015, and July 31, 2016, you:

  • owned or were the lessee of residential real property that received water from the Flint Water Treatment Plant, or were legally liable for the payment of such water (Property Damage Subclass);

  • owned or operated a business, including income earning real property and any other businesses, that received water from the Flint Water Treatment Plant and are claiming or could claim a resulting business economic loss (Business Economic Loss Subclass); or

  • ingested or came into contact with water received from the Flint Water Treatment Plant and are claiming or could claim a resulting personal injury (Adult Exposure Subclass); and

  • were 18 years old as of January 31, 2024.

  • AND YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL WHO IS NOT CLASS COUNSEL.  (If you are represented by counsel (other than class counsel) you are not a class member.)

 

If you are a VNA settlement Class Member and you already registered for one of the prior settlements AND filed a timely claim form, you do not need to do anything to participate in the new settlement. You are automatically considered a claimant for this new VNA settlement. If you are a VNA settlement Class Member and did not file a claim form for the prior settlements, you need to submit a Claim Form by mail postmarked by September 16, 2024, to get any money from the VNA Settlement Fund. A copy of the Notice, Claim Form, and Instructions for this new VNA Settlement can be found HERE. THE DEADLINE TO FILE CLAIM FORMS AND ALL SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION FOR THE VNA SETTLEMENT IS SEPTEMBER 16, 2024.

IF YOU ARE A MINOR AS OF JANUARY 31, 2024 OR IF YOU ARE REPRESENTED BY INDIVIDUAL COUNSEL YOU ARE NOT A MEMBER OF THE VNA SETTLEMENT CLASS AND YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE IN THE VNA SETTLEMENT.
