Your Legal Rights And Options

Remain in the Settlement Classes

In order to remain in the Settlement Classes, you do not need to do anything at this time. If you are a member of Settlement Class II, you are entitled to get money from the Settlement Fund by filing a claim by MAY 17, 2017. The Notice and Frequently Asked Questions have an explanation of how much money you may get. Money from the Settlement Fund will only be available if the Court gives final approval to the Settlement and any appeals are resolved in its favor.

By staying in the Settlement Class II, you will be giving up your right to sue (or continue to sue) Home City (and related parties) for damages arising from the indirect purchase of Packaged Ice in Arizona, Arkansas, California, District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and/or Wyoming.  

Settlement Class I Members cannot exclude themselves from the Settlement; so they do not release any right to sue Home City (or related parties) for damages if they are not also members of Settlement Class II. However, Settlement Class I Members will be giving up their right to sue (or continue to sue) Home City (and related parties) for non-monetary relief in the arising from the indirect purchase of Packaged Ice anywhere in the United States. 

The Settlement Agreement has a specific description of the rights to sue you will be giving up. If the Settlement is not finally approved by the Court or any appeals are not resolved in favor of the Settlement, the Settlement will be null and void and the releases will not become effective.

Exclude Yourself from Settlement Class II

If you exclude yourself from Settlement Class II, you will not be bound by the release of the monetary claims in the Settlement with Home City (and related parties) and will keep any right you may have to sue Home City (and related parties) for monetary relief for indirect purchases of Packaged Ice. However, you will not be entitled to a payment from the Settlement Fund. The exclusion deadline is May 17, 2017.

The Notice and Frequently Asked Questions have instructions on how to exclude yourself from Settlement Class II.

Object

 If you are a member of Settlement Class I, you may object to the part of the proposed Settlement that impacts the rights of Settlement Class I members. If you are a member of Settlement Class II and do not exclude yourself from Settlement Class II, you may also object to the part of the proposed Settlement that impacts the rights of Settlement Class II members. If you are a member of Settlement Class II, you are also a member of Settlement Class I. So you keep the right to object to the part of the proposed Settlement that impacts the rights of Settlement Class I members even if you exclude yourself from Settlement Class II. If you are a member of either or both Settlement Classes, you may also object to Class Counsel's request for attorneys' fees and expenses.

The Notice and Frequently Asked Questions have instructions on how to object to the proposed settlement and/or Class Counsel's request for attorneys' fees and expenses. The objection deadline is May 17, 2017.

Appear

With or without counsel, you may enter an appearance in the litigation and appear at the hearing (at your own expense) to determine if the Settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate and should be approved, and Class Counsel's request for attorneys' fees and expenses should be approved.
