If a Settlement Class Member did not opt out of the Settlement, they could have objected to the Settlement if they didn’t agree with any part of it and didn’t think the Settlement should be approved. They must have given reasons why they think the Court should not approve it. The deadline to object to the Settlement was February 12, 2018.
To object, a Class Member must have submitted a written letter to the Settlement Administrator by mail, postmarked by the deadline below, stating that they object to the Settlement in Delkener v. Cottage Health System, et al., Case No. 30-2016-00847934-CU-NP-CXC, Superior Court of the State of California, County of Orange, and stated the reasons why they think the Court should not approve the Settlement. Class Members must have also included: (a) their name, address, telephone number, and signature; (b) a detailed statement of their specific objections; and (c) a detailed statement of the grounds for such objections.
If they wished the Court to consider any records in support of their objection, they must have enclosed copies of such records with the written objection, or if the subject records are not in their possession, custody, or control they must have identified those records and the person(s) whom they believe has possession of them.
Class Members must have mailed their objection, and any supporting records, to the Settlement Administrator, postmarked no later than February 12, 2018, addressed to:
Cottage Health Settlement Administrator
JND Legal Administration
P.O. Box 6878
Broomfield, CO 80021
Class Members could not have objected to the Settlement by telephone, electronic mail, or any other method except by mail, in the manner described in the Class Notice.
An objector is not required to retain an attorney in order to object to the Settlement, but may have done so if desired, at the objector’s own expense. If the objector submitting the objection was represented by an attorney concerning the objection, the objection must have complied with the additional requirements set forth in the Court’s Order Granting Preliminary Approval of Proposed Class Action Settlement, a copy of which is available on the Important Documents webpage.
If a Class Member did not properly submit a timely written objection, their objection will be deemed waived, they were not permitted to assert their objection at the fairness hearing, and it will not be considered by the Court. If they did not submit or identify all supporting records with their written objection, they were not able to present such supporting records at the fairness hearing.
