Objections

If you are a member of the 22 Indirect Purchaser State Classes and submitted a claim in or objected to the 2016 Settlements, you may ask the Court to deny approval of the Settlements as amended by the Amendments or to the reduced attorneys’ fees request by filing objections with the Court. Please note that you cannot ask the Court to order a larger settlement or change the terms of the settlements; the Court can only approve or deny the Settlements as amended by the Amendments. 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.

If you decide to object, you must do so in writing. Written objections must include the following information:

  • Your name, address, telephone number, and if you are being assisted by a lawyer, the lawyer’s name, address and telephone number;
  • The Action name and number (In Re: Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Antitrust Litigation, MDL No. 1917);
  • Proof of membership in one or more of the 22 Indirect Purchaser State Classes;
  • A brief explanation of your reasons for objecting; and
  • Your signature.

The objection must be submitted to the Court either by mailing it to the Class Action Clerk at the address below, or by filing it in person at any location of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

The deadline to file objections with the Court is May 29, 2020:

Class Action Clerk
