If you exclude yourself from the Class, you may not submit a claim and you will not be entitled to receive payment from this Settlement.

Any person who would otherwise be a member of the Class may be excluded from the Class and from the Settlement by mailing a written request for exclusion to the Class Administrator to the following address:

Hawai’i Hep-A Exclusions
c/o The Notice Company
P.O. Box 455
Hingham, MA 02043

To be valid, your exclusion request must be received no later than February 15, 2019. Your request for exclusion must

  • specify your full name and mailing address,
  • be signed and dated, and
  • state that you request to be “Excluded from the Hawai’i Hepatitis-A Class Action (Civil No. 17-1-HEP (JHA)) in the State of Hawai’i”.

A member of the Class submitting such a request shall be deemed excluded from the Settlement Class and from this Settlement.

Any potential member of the Class who does not file a timely written request for exclusion will be bound by the Settlement and all subsequent proceedings, orders and judgments in this lawsuit, even if that member of the Class does not submit a claim or subsequently initiates litigation against the Defendants relating to the HAV outbreak and/or the matters released.
