    Won’t allow a number for quantity. It puts a line: _
    And the line cannot be altered or erased. And please STOP answering “It must be a browser problem, it worked for me” or “contact the administrator” because it is obviously a huge error on your website, as it is happening to multiple people using a wide variety of devices and browsers.

    It is not my website. While I own this website the claim form is hosted by the class action administrator.

  45. Bertha M Freeman says:

    ADMIN – Hi Bertha,

    The settlement page reads as follows:

    The Court will hold a hearing on April 16, 2018 to decide whether to grant final approval to the settlement. If the Court approves the settlement, there may be appeals. It is always uncertain whether appeals will be filed and, if so, how long it will take to resolve them. Cash refunds will be distributed as soon as possible, only if and when the Court grants final approval to the settlement and after any appeals are resolved. Please be patient.


  46. HTate says:

    How do we know “if and when” the Court will grant final approval to the settlement and/or after any appeals are resolved? Thank you.

    ADMIN – Hi Mr. Tate,

    None of us know. There are endless factors affecting the timing of trials to include a court system that has a work overload and unexpected appeals that arise.
