Minute Entry for proceedings held before Judge Joy Flowers Conti: Final Fairness Hearing held on 4/11/2024. The court held a final fairness hearing on the settlement of the economic loss claims. Counsel committed to follow up with objectors and deficient opt out persons, and to continue representation of the class throughout any appeals, as set forth on the record. Philips agreed that opt outs who missed the deadline by one day will be considered timely and valid and represented that it will not exercise its right to terminate the agreement. The court will issue an opinion and order with respect to approval of the settlement and will include list of deficient opt outs with that order. Counsel will provide an updated list and a revised proposed order. The court reviewed all 78 objections on the record. No objectors appeared in person at the hearing. All as further stated on the record. So Clean indicated it would file objections to Special master Katzs R&R about Pretrial Order #31 (ECF #[2708]). The objections are due by 4/18/24; Philips may respond by 4/23/24; and the court will address the matter at the status conference on 4/25/24. All as stated on the record at the conclusion of the oral arguments in Misc. # 22-152 on April 12, 2024. (Court Reporter: Marsia Balobeck) Text-only entry; no PDF document will issue.
