What is a class action lawsuit settlement?
A class action lawsuit is one with multiple plaintiffs. In other words, there are more than one person being represented by the lawsuit. Oftentimes, plaintiff(s) file the case on behalf of many people who were affected by the actual suit. For example, if you purchased an item that was later involved in a class action lawsuit, you may be entitled to compensation.
If you’re included in the class or group of people affected, then you can file a claim to receive money, coupons or replacement products. Each case is different, and each will specify who is included.
In addition, class action lawsuits may require proof that you are part of the group of affected people. In this case, proof of purchase or other specified proof is needed. However, in some cases, no proof is required. In that case, you can file a claim without proving that you are part of the class of people affected. Of course, when you file a claim you are doing so under penalty of perjury. So, do not file if you do not qualify.
Perjury is the intentional act of swearing a false oath or falsifying an affirmation to tell the truth, whether spoken or in writing, concerning matters material to an official proceeding. – Wikipedia
What’s this settlement about?
The Automotive Parts Litigation includes four rounds of settlements arising from lawsuits against a number of auto parts makers. It alleges that they agreed to unlawfully raise the price of various vehicle component parts. As a result, consumers and businesses may have paid more than they should have. These alleged acts violate U.S. Antitrust laws and are commonly referred to as price-fixing.
Because of the number of Defendants that were included in the lawsuits, the class action was divided into four separate rounds. Each round included a group of defendants that were allegedly involved in the price-fixing. Round 1 Settlements totaled approximately $225 million (August 9, 2016). And, Round 2 totaled approximately $379 million (July 10, 2017). Then, Round 3 Settlements totaled approximately $433 million (November 7, 2018). Finally, the fourth and final round of defendants (Round 4 Settlements) reached proposed settlements totaling approximately $184 million (September 2019). As a result, the total of all four rounds is approximately $1.2 billion.
