      Like others I was unable to file online or DL a claim form (due to programming errors on the website). I called the 877 number almost 4 wks. ago and rec'd. nothing. Rust Consulting is listed on the security certificate for the website, so yesterday I emailed them explaining the problem. They replied that some people have had problems with the website, but most have not. They were very helpful and sent me a claim form in a pdf. file.

THEY WERE ABLE TO LOOK ME UP AND GAVE ME EVERY PIECE OF INFO THAT I NEEDED FOR MY CLAIM FORM, INCLUDING THE EXACT DATE, (MONTH, DAY & YEAR), THAT I BOUGHT IT; MAKE; MODEL #; HORSEPOWER; WHO MADE IT AND ETC.. YOU SHOULD CHECK WITH WHO YOU BOUGHT IT FROM. THEY VERY WELL MAY HAVE YOUR INFORMATION AS WELL. OH, BY THE WAY, SEARS KNEW ALL ABOUT THE CLASS ACTION AS WELL. EVEN WHY IT WAS DONE. PERHAPS THEY CAN HELP YOU AS WELL.

      To those having issues downloading the .PDF claim form, make sure to use Internet Explorer. Other browsers have trouble displaying the page correctly due to poor web development.

      Settlement Update - Thursday, August 05, 2010

      The Court conducted the Final Approval Hearing on June 22, 2010. The Court took the Settlements and the request for attorneys’ fees and expenses under advisement and will issue a ruling in the near future. Please keep in mind that no distributions (cash payments or warranty certificates) can be made to Class Members until the Court issues its rulings and any appeals are resolved. Please be patient.

      Settlement Update - Thursday, August 19, 2010

      On August 16, 2010, Judge Adelman granted Plaintiffs’ motion for final approval of the settlements with all defendants. Please keep in mind that appeals may be filed and no distributions (cash payments or warranty certificates) can be made until any and all appeals are resolved.

      bob 6 years ago

      On August 16, 2010 Judge Adelman issued an opinion and order that finally approved the Settlement as well as separate orders that finally approved the settlements of all defendants. Judge Adelman's opinion and order found all settlements to be in good faith and dismissed the claims of all class members with prejudice. On August 23, 2010 several class members filed a Notice of Appeal of Judge Adelman's final approval orders to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Under the terms of the Settlement, the balance of settlement funds will not be due, and the one-year warranty extension program will not begin, until after all appeals from Judge Adelman's order finally approving the Settlement are resolved.

      bob 6 years ago

      Read the fine print about the award. It states UP TO, it did not say she or anyone else definitely would receive $75 as owner of a rider lawnmower. By the time the lawyers divide their take there may be nothing left. Why are people so greedy?

      Well, did anyone else looking for a gift from Heaven bother to read the FINAL APPROVAL AND DECISION ORDER dated August 16, 2010?

      Page 5 states that after all costs the actual payout for walk behinds may be $10-$15 dollars and $23-$28 for riding lawn mowers.

      As of June 10, 2010 there were 1,058,693 filings (claims)

      There is a $65 million cash fund for payout

      Attorneys will receive $576,391.19 for costs and $34,666,667 plus interest for fees

      Each class representative will receive a $1,000.00 service award and there are 132 class representatives.

      Copy or click on this link to open the document http://bit.ly/8ZNIgJ

      ....Regarding actual payout–yes, as with any class action lawsuit, the final number of claimants will determine actual payout. Given the numbers to date, it looks like the claimants will be sharing a pool of about $29M, give or take. You have to realize that part of the class action is about the settlement payout, and part of it is about what the class action is about to begin with–false advertising. The greater “win” here is that proper labeling will be ensured going forward (and btw, if you’re concerned about cost, the new reg’s that’ll require these mowers to be more “green” will add more cost per unit than the change to hp labeling will–I’ve heard the argument that this class action will add to the cost to manufacture the mowers–well, look real hard at what other changes happen with mowers going forward before you try to make that argument). So yes, will claimants receive less than they may have originally anticipated? Yes. But also, that point was made in the initial proposed settlement document–as it is with every class action. At least claimants will be getting something in the form of payout in addition to the extended warranty coverage.

      Is the Attorney being paid for the number of Claimers or is He being paid for the number of those unable to file?

      The Lawn Mower ID is impossible to find, and Why isn't the Serial Number, Model Number, Manufacturer, and Type of Lawn Mower Enough? Surely the Attorney and the Guilty Party knows the Lawn Mower ID is placed in an impossible location. Especially on the Walk-Behind Mowers. But to everyone, keep on looking. I have 4 mowers. I found two of the ID Numbers. But I see the serial, model, manufacturer, and type of mower clearly on each of them. P.S. I wonder why the website isn't User Friendly? Has someone hacked into the friendly side and made it stubborn or angry? Who can help???
