DO NOT CONTACT THE COURT OR DEFENDANTS IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS REGARDING THE NOTICE

 


YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE NEW SETTLEMENT AND PROPOSED DISTRIBUTION ARE DESCRIBED BELOW

Submit a Claim by January 9, 2019

This is the only way to receive a payment. If you submit a claim, you will be bound by the judgment dismissing the lawsuit against NGC, American, and PABCO, and you will not be able to file or maintain your own lawsuit against NGC, American, or PABCO regarding the subject of this lawsuit.

Do Nothing

If you do not submit a claim, you will receive no payment but will be bound by the judgment dismissing the lawsuit against NGC, American, and PABCO, and you will not be able to file or maintain your own lawsuit against NGC, American, or PABCO regarding the subject of this lawsuit.

EXCLUDE YOURSELF FROM THE New Settlement Class by September 21, 2018

You have the right to exclude yourself from the New Settlement. If you exclude yourself from the New Settlement, you will not be bound by it and will not be entitled to receive any money from it.  If you exclude yourself from the New Settlement, you may have the right to bring your own lawsuit against American Gypsum, NGC, or PABCO at your own expense.  Excluding yourself from the New Settlement Class will have no effect on your rights with respect to the prior settlements with Lafarge, TIN or USG.

HIRE YOUR OWN LAWYER

You may, but are not required to, hire your own lawyer at your own expense to advise you of your rights under the settlement.   If you do not request exclusion from the New Settlement Class you may also, but are not required to, enter an appearance in the lawsuit through your attorney.

OBJECT BY SEPTEMBER 21, 2018

If you are a member of the New Settlement Class (and do not exclude yourself), then you may write to the Court to object to the terms of the New Settlement.  Any objection to the New Settlement will pertain only to that settlement, not to the USG, TIN, or LaFarge settlements previously approved by the Court. 


If you are a member of the New Settlement Class, or of the USG, TIN, or LaFarge Settlement Classes, you may object to the Proposed Distribution, the request for attorney’s fees and litigation expenses, and/or the Class Representative incentive awards.
