UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF INDIANA INDIANAPOLIS DIVISION
CASE NO. 1:05-cv-1908-TWP-TAB
SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT REACHED IN
ORMOND V. ANTHEM
THE OBJECTORS’ APPEALS OF THE SETTLEMENT WERE VOLUNTARILY DISMISSED ALLOWING DISTRIBUTION OF THE SETTLEMENT FUND TO CLASS MEMBERS TO BEGIN
On November 20, 2012, the trial court approved the $90 million settlement, class representative awards, attorneys’ fees and expenses, overruling the three objections that had been filed.
Two of the settlement objectors filed appeals challenging the Court-approved settlement which prevented settlement checks from being distributed to class members until after the appeals were resolved.
Because the settlement objectors voluntarily dismissed their appeals, and the court has approved that dismissal, distribution of the settlement fund can now begin. The Settlement Administrator expects settlement checks will be mailed by August 2, 2013.
