Case Home

A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT HAS BEEN REACHED IN THIS CASE

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS WILL BE AFFECTED BY THE SETTLEMENT OF THIS LAWSUIT.  PLEASE READ THE NOTICE CAREFULLY.  IT EXPLAINS THE LAWSUIT, THE SETTLEMENT, AND YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.

SUMMARY OF YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS SETTLEMENT

HOW TO GET PAID FROM THE SETTLEMENT

YOU MUST COMPLETE THE ATTACHED CLAIM FORM AND IT MUST BE RECEIVED BY THE CLASS SETTLEMENT ADMINISTRATOR NO LATER THAN MARCH 21, 2022.

A class action settlement has been reached in the above-styled matter.  The Settlement Fund is $175,000.00. There are approximately 964 people in the Settlement Class.  If you timely return the attached Claim Form or file a claim through the Settlement Website and the Court grants final approval of the Class Settlement, you will be sent a Settlement Check. The amount of your Settlement Check will be determined by dividing: 100% of the Settlement Fund less administrative costs and Class Counsel’s litigation expenses by the number of Class Members that timely return claim forms to the Class Settlement Administrator. 

IF YOU DO NOTHING

If the Court approves the settlement and you do nothing, you will not receive any money from the settlement and you will be releasing any and all claims against Enterprise Holdings, Inc., its subsidiaries, and other related Enterprise entities and agents. The Full Release and Released Parties are available in the Important Court Documents section.

IF YOU EXCLUDE YOURSELF FROM THE SETTLEMENT

You have the right to exclude yourself from the settlement completely (“opt out”).  You can opt out by following the instructions in #6 of the Frequently Asked Questions section.  You will not receive any monetary payments from the Settlement.  You will not have any right to object, but you will not be bound by the terms of this Settlement and will retain your right to file your own lawsuit. The opt out deadline is March 21, 2022.

HOW TO

OBJECT

If you don’t exclude yourself from the Settlement, you can object to any part of the Settlement. You are not required to object if you simply want to receive your share of the money being paid in the Settlement of this case.

If you wish to file an objection, you must file your written objection with the Settlement Administrator by March 21, 2022. Your written objection must also be mailed to both Class Counsel and Enterprise’s Counsel and postmarked or received no later than March 21, 2022. Your written objection must contain the specific information set forth in the Settlement Agreement which is available in #7 of the Frequently Asked Questions section. 

Failure to take these steps will be deemed a waiver of your objection(s).  If the Court rejects your objection, you will still be bound by the terms of the settlement and the release, but you will also receive a monetary payment as if you had not objected.

 

These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in the notice.

If you do not exclude yourself, you may object to the settlement.  You can remain in the Settlement Class but file written objections to the Settlement.  The Court will consider the objections in deciding whether to approve the Settlement.  If you do not exclude yourself and the Settlement is approved, you will not be able to sue Defendants or any of the Released Parties for the Released Claims, defined as: any and all claims, demands, debts, liabilities, obligations, liens, actions and causes of action, costs, expenses, attorneys’ fees and damages of whatever kind or nature, at law, in equity and otherwise, whether known or unknown, anticipated, suspected or disclosed, that the Releasing Parties may have had, now have or hereafter may have against the Released Parties, which relate to or arise from the WARN Act or analogous state or local law or regulation applying to mass layoffs and/or plant closings, that are duplicative of, or subsumed by, the claims asserted in this case (the “Released Claims”).  To be clear and for the avoidance of doubt, this Limited Release does not and is not intended to serve as a general release as to the Class Members. Rather, it is intended to be a Limited Release as to claims the Class Members have against the Released Parties under the WARN Act, or analogous state or local law or regulation applying to mass layoffs and/or plant closings.
