11. How can I get a payment?
To be eligible to receive a payment under the settlement, you must be a Class Member and not have excluded yourself from the settlement. The instructions and procedures for receiving payment as a Recouped Class Member and Unrecouped Class Member are different. You may be a Recouped Class Member, an Unrecouped Class Member or both, and the answer may be different for different films and for different Profit Participation interests on the same films. So, please review and follow the procedures described below carefully for each film and for each Profit Participation interest.
Recouped Class Members:
If you are a Recouped Class Member who received the Notice in the mail, you do not need to submit a claim form or take any other action. Your eligibility will be confirmed and payments described above will be provided to you automatically.
If you believe that you may be a Recouped Class Member and you did not receive the Notice in the mail, you can inquire into whether you are an eligible Class Member and apply to take part in the Settlement by March 2, 2018, by emailing FoxHVS@AdministratorClassAction.com or calling 1-844-611-5265 TOLL-FREE. You may be required by the Settlement Administrator to produce proof of your status as a Recouped Class Member before you may participate in the Settlement. If you do not take any action you will not receive any benefits and you will be subject to the release described in the Notice.
Unrecouped Class Members:
If you are an Unrecouped Class Member, you MUST to submit a claim form by March 2, 2018 in order to participate and receive benefits from the Settlement. You need to submit a claim form as an Unrecouped Class Member even if you received the Notice in the mail or if you are also a Recouped Class Member.
The claim form can be found by clicking here. You can also obtain a claim form by emailing FoxHVS@AdministratorClassAction.com or calling 1-844-611-5265 TOLL-FREE. Claim forms may be submitted online, via mail, or via email. If you do not take any action you will not receive any benefits and you will be subject to the release described in the Notice.
12. When will I get my payment?
The payments will be sent to eligible Class Members after the Court grants “final approval” of the settlement and after any appeals are resolved.
The Court will hold a Fairness Hearing on April 9, 2018, at 11:00 a.m. (Pacific time) to decide whether to approve the settlement. If you want to attend the hearing, keep in mind that the date and/or time may be changed after the Notice is sent, so you should check this settlement website before making travel plans.
If the Court approves the settlement (see FAQs 21–23), there may be appeals. It’s always uncertain whether these appeals can be resolved, and resolving them can take time. Please be patient. You can check for updates and other important information by using any of the methods listed in FAQ 24.
