Cook, et al. v. Rockwell International Corp. and The Dow Chemical Co., No. 90-cv-00181-JLK (D. Colo.)
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Third and Final Distribution checks were issued and mailed on November 8, 2019. Please note that the Court approved this Third and Final Distribution and approved the manner of calculating the Third and Final Distribution amount. The Court’s Order approving this distribution and related documents are available in the ‘Documents’ section of this website. The Court-approved methodology for the Third and Final Distribution is the same as the methodology that the Court approved for the Second Distribution. Thus, all valid claimants are receiving a Third Distribution award, on a pro rata basis, equal to approximately 10.78 percent of the amount of their Second Distribution award.
Please also note that we do not anticipate that there will be any further distributions in connection with the settlement of the above-listed matter.
The Third and Final Distribution checks were issued on November 8, 2019 and will expire in 180 days, or on May 6, 2020. If you have not cashed your First or Second Distribution check, it is now void and must be replaced. YOU MUST CONTACT the Settlement and Claims Administrator by telephone at 1-844-528-0187 or through the ‘Contact’ section of this website to request a replacement check.
Again, if your address or contact information has changed since submitting your Claim Form, you should contact us with your new address or contact information at your earliest convenience. You should contact us, including your claim number or Class Member ID: (a) in writing at: Rocky Flats Settlement; c/o Heffler Claims Group; Settlement and Claims Administrator; P.O. Box 58459; Philadelphia, PA 19102-8459; (b) by telephone at 1-844-528-0187; or (c) through the ‘Contact’ section of this website. Thank you.
Some potential Class Members have received mailings by a company or companies claiming they can help you file a claim in the Rocky Flats class action settlement. The mailings are labeled “FINAL NOTICE” and they give an incorrect February 17, 2017 deadline for filing a claim. This is false: The Court-ordered deadline for filing a claim is June 1, 2017.
The mailings are not the Court-approved Class Notice. They were not authorized by the Court.
The real Class Notice is available here. It is important to read the official Class Notice. The Class Notice contains information about the case, the settlement, and your rights as a potential Class Member. The mailings were sent by a third-party claims processing company. YOU WILL PROBABLY RECEIVE LESS THAN YOUR FULL SETTLEMENT AMOUNT if you hire a claims processor. These companies charge a fee, usually a substantial percentage of your recovery. You do not need a claims processor. The Settlement and Claims Administrator, Heffler Claims Group, was appointed by the Court to help you to file your claim, at no additional cost to you. If you have any questions or need assistance with filing your claim, please contact the Settlement and Claims Administrator at 1-844-528-0187, or via the “Contact” section of this website. You may also contact Class Counsel:
Merrill G. Davidoff David F. Sorensen BERGER & MONTAGUE, P.C. 1622 Locust Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 Tel: (215) 875-3000
If you owned a home, business, or other property in the Denver, Colorado area around the Rocky Flats Nuclear Plant on June 7, 1989, or if you are the heir to that property owner, a recent class action settlement with the former operators of the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant (Rockwell International Corp. and The Dow Chemical Co.) may affect your rights.
This website is authorized by the Court to explain your rights, to help you determine if you are an eligible Class Member, and to help you file a claim.
Dates and Deadlines will apply. Please read this website carefully and contact the Settlement Administrator if you have any questions about this settlement.
