GOLD, et al v. DEKALB COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT, et al.

IN THE SUPERIOR COURT OF DEKALB COUNTY, STATE OF GEORGIA, CIVIL ACTION FILE NO 11-CV-3657-5

Update (12/11/2020): 

We are pleased to advise that class member payments for the first (of five) annual checks under the Settlement Agreement were mailed December 9th, 2020. At this time, we will continue to maintain functionality for email inquiries from class members and appreciate your patience.  Please allow 3 weeks for your check to be delivered before inquiring to check the status as checks will not be reissued before that time. 

Each check amount is different.  They represent each class member’s proportionate share of the net settlement proceeds as calculated using the methodology outlined in the Distribution Plan that was approved by the Court.  The calculations were performed by the damages experts hired by the class and have been reviewed several times for accuracy.  We do not have the underlying data that was used to perform the calculations; however, we are highly confident that the amounts are correct based upon the Court approved process.

The next round of annual settlement checks will be mailed on December 9, 2021.  Please check back here for updates.
