    I submitted my claim in Sept 2016, and it was acknowledged via email by Alex LaSalle, on December 14, 2016. The email expressly stated that my claim was properly submitted and approved, and that payout is expected in the second half of 2017. My question is about the status of that payment. Do you have a date as to the release of funds for payment as yet? I appreciate your time in reading this, and would greatly appreciate a reply if you have the time. Thank you and have an excellent day! Sandra J Brooks

    ADMIN – Hi Sandra,

    We still have five months left in the second half of 2017. If Mr. LaSalle acknowledged your submission I am sure it is going to be processed once they are ready.

    I had an ACL reconstruction surgery in August 1996 with Dr Losse. I believe I was a bonified claimant in this Class action and was never notified. I need to find out what my options are at this point. I also went through therapy at Healt South. My knee has always bothered me, and I had no Knowledge of this lawsuit until today. I am considering contacting an attorney to find out my rights right away. Plaese contact me if you have any advice as to waht rights I might have at this point.

    Thankyou very much-
    Donald Swanson

    ADMIN – Hi Donald,

    Once the deadline has passed you don’t have much in the way of recourse.
