YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO MONEY IF YOU WERE ISSUED A SUMMONS THAT WAS DISMISSED DURING THE YEARS COVERED BY THIS LAWSUIT

You must have filed a Claim Form, postmarked by September 6, 2017 to be included in this Class Action Settlement.

This is a proposed Settlement of a Class Action lawsuit. The City of New York has agreed to pay up to $150 dollars per incident to people who were issued a summons without probable cause that was later dismissed for legal or facial insufficiency.

For purposes of payment pursuant to the settlement, the Settlement Class includes individuals who received a Criminal Court Summons by an NYPD officer, whose summons was dismissed by the court for facial or legal insufficiency and lacked probable cause from the start of the class period, May 25, 2007, through January 25, 2017.

The Settlement would entitle each Class Member to a pro rata share of the $75 Million Class Fund (after payment of up to $1.5 Million for administrative costs, service awards to the Named Plaintiffs; and $18.5 Million towards attorneys’ fees and costs).

You are entitled to recover for each summons that you received on different dates and/or times. However, if you received multiple summonses at the same time, you are only entitled to recover once. The amount Class Members receive depends on how many people file valid Claim Forms, however, in no instance will any Class Member be compensated in an amount greater than $150 per summons.

***Please note that other than the reason for your summons dismissal, we do not have any other specific information regarding the summons which was issued to you. If you would like more information, please visit the criminal court in the county where you received the summons.***
