Update about Proposed MDL Class Action Settlements

The MDL Court has granted preliminary approval to settlements of all 19 of the certified class action cases in the MDL.  Most of you by now have received official Court-approved notices that explain the details of the settlement, the anticipated amount of your recovery and the procedure that the Court has set out if you have any questions, objections or if you disagree with the calculations of your expected recovery.

The Notices of Settlement were mailed to every Class member, using contact information provided by FedEx Ground.  The Settlement Administrator is Rust Consulting.  If you have not received your letter yet and you worked for FedEx Ground during the Class Period, please contact Rust directly to provide the Administrator with your updated contact information.  The same is true if the “contractor” has passed away and the claim is expected to be received by an Estate.  There is a contact number for Rust for each state in the chart below.

Rust has created individual web sites for each of the certified class actions that are the subject of the proposed settlements. These web pages include copies of important documents, such as the Notice, the Proposed Settlement Agreement, important Dates, contact information for any disputes and other information.  Each page also has answers to specific common questions related to each state’s settlement.  For ease of reference, we have provided links for each state below.

The only states that are covered by this group of proposed settlements are those states listed below and the settlements generally include only those drivers who worked during the “Class Period” as defined in each State lawsuit.  The Class Period and description of the proposed settlement for each state is contained in each state-specific website.  This list includes all of the certified class actions remaining in the MDL.

For drivers in other states, please consult the “Synopsis by State” topic above, and contact the local attorneys listed if you should have any further questions.
