YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS

SUBMIT A CLAIM FORM BY JANUARY 7, 2013. This is the only way to be eligible to get a payment from the Settlement. If you are a Class Member and you remain in the Class, you will be bound by the Settlement as approved by the Court and you will give up any Settled Claims that you have against Defendants and the other Released Parties, so, if you remain in the Class, it is in your interest to submit a Claim Form.
EXCLUDE YOURSELF FROM THE CLASS BY SUBMITTING A WRITTEN REQUEST FOR EXCLUSION SO THAT IT IS RECEIVED NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 29, 2012. If you exclude yourself from the Class, you will not be eligible to get any payment from the Settlement Fund. This is the only option that allows you to ever be part of any other lawsuit against any of the Defendants or the other Released Parties concerning the Settled Claims.
OBJECT TO THE SETTLEMENT BY SUBMITTING A WRITTEN OBJECTION SO THAT IT IS RECEIVED NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 29, 2012. If you do not like the proposed Settlement with the Company Defendants, the proposed Settlement with E&Y, the proposed Plan of Allocation, or the request for attorneys’ fees and reimbursement of Litigation Expenses, you may write to the Court and explain why you do not like them. You cannot object to the Settlement, the Plan of Allocation or the fee and expense request unless you are a Class Member and do not exclude yourself.
GO TO THE HEARING ON NOVEMBER 19, 2012 AT 4:30 P.M., AND FILE A NOTICE OF INTENTION TO APPEAR SO THAT IT IS RECEIVED NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 29, 2012. Filing a written objection and notice of intention to appear by October 29, 2012, allows you to speak in Court about the fairness of the proposed Settlement, the Plan of Allocation, or the request for attorneys’ fees and reimbursement of Litigation Expenses. If you submit a written objection, you may (but do not have to) attend the hearing and speak to the Court about your objection.
DO NOTHING. If you are a member of the Class and you do not submit a Claim Form by January 7, 2013, you will not be eligible to receive any payment from the Settlement Fund. You will, however, remain a member of the Class, which means that you give up your right to sue about the claims that are resolved by the Settlement and you will be bound by any judgments or orders entered by the Court in the Action.
