9. Why did the representative plaintiffs agree to this settlement?

The representative plaintiffs met with Class Counsel to hear why we recommended the settlement. Then they also met with a retired judge, who was completely independent, and discussed the settlement with him without Class Counsel present.

In the end, the representative plaintiffs agreed with Class Counsel that this settlement was a good idea because there were many risks at trial (see FAQs #10-14), and there is a benefit to getting the money sooner(see FAQ#13).
