GBS: EFF on the Revised Settlement Procedures

A large coalition of objectors and amici led by the EFF have sent a letter to the court requesting a set of procedural protections once the parties present a revised version of the settlement:

  • A chance to comment on the parties’ proposed schedule for opt-outs and objections and the fairness hearing before the court issues an order for preliminary approval.
  • Required translations of the original settlement and the amendments.
  • “Robust” notice to the class of the changes.
  • No restrictions on the scope of objections or comments.
  • An explicit assurance that any responses already filed need not be filed again.

Thank you EFF for prividing leadership in making this vital due process intervention with the Court.
