You can ask the Court to deny approval by filing an objection. You can’t ask the Court to order a larger settlement; the Court can only approve or deny the proposed settlement. If the Court denies approval, no settlement payments will be sent out and the lawsuit will continue. If that is what you want to happen, you must object.
To object, you must send a letter to the Court and parties that includes:
• The name of this proceeding (John Humphreys, et al. v. FedEx Ground Package System, Inc., Civil No. 3:05-cv-00540-RLM-CAN);
• Your full name, address, and phone number;
• A written statement that you are objecting to the settlement, as well as the specific reason(s), if any, for each objection, including any legal or factual support you wish to bring to the Court’s attention;
• Any evidence or other information you wish to introduce in support of your objection;
• Evidence or other information showing you are a member of the Class.
To be considered, you must file your letter with the Court and mail it to the Settlement Administrator, Class Counsel and Defense Counsel. Your letter of objection must be mailed postmarked no later than November 14, 2016.
