28. Why are people who didn’t submit their forms on time getting some of the money?

In a class action (such as this lawsuit), Class Counsel and the Court are required to be fair to all class members – both those who submitted their forms on time, and those who submitted their forms late.

The claimants who submitted their forms late have good excuses for doing so. Class Counsel think it would be unfair to exclude them.

There are only a few claimants who submitted their forms late. Class Counsel and the experts checked how much difference it would make to the claimants who submitted their forms on time if we included the claimants who submitted their forms late. The difference is very small. Because of this, Class Counsel think that it is not unfair to the claimants who submitted their forms on time.
