NPAS Solutions has denied any and all liability alleged in the Lawsuit.
On November 28, 2017, after appropriate arms-length negotiations, Plaintiff and NPAS Solutions (the "Parties") entered into a written settlement agreement (the "Settlement Agreement"), which [*2] is subject to review under Fed. R. Civ. P. 23.
On November 29, 2017, Plaintiff filed the Settlement Agreement, along with his Unopposed Motion for Preliminary Approval of Class Action Settlement (the "Preliminary Approval Motion").
In compliance with the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005, 28 U.S.C. §§ 1332(d), 1453, and 1711-1715, NPAS Solutions caused written notice of the proposed class settlement as directed.
On December 4, 2017, upon consideration of Plaintiff's Preliminary Approval Motion and the record, the Court entered an Order of Preliminary Approval of Class Action Settlement (the "Preliminary Approval Order"). Pursuant to the Preliminary Approval Order, the Court, among other things, (i) preliminarily certified (for settlement purposes only) a class of plaintiffs (the "Class Members") with respect to the claims asserted in the Lawsuit; (ii) preliminarily approved the proposed settlement; (iii) appointed Charles T. Johnson as the Class Representative; (iv) appointed Greenwald Davidson Radbil PLLC as Class Counsel; and (v) set the date and time of the Settlement Approval Hearing.
