Class counsel has now reached a settlement of the SEBAC lawsuit with the Connecticut Attorney General. The settlement has been approved by the General Assembly.
The Court presiding over the case has also preliminarily approved the settlement and has scheduled a hearing to consider whether to give final approval for the settlement. That hearing will take place on October 1, 2015 at the United States District Court at 450 Main Street, in Hartford.
Class members will receive notice before the hearing – either by mail, email or workplace posting, or through publication in several newspapers throughout Connecticut – which will advise them of the date of the hearing and their rights with respect to the settlement. It is expected that the notices will be mailed, emailed or published on or before August 1, 2015.READ THE FULL POST
