Do I have a choice in whether I participate in the Class Action?

If the court decides that you fall within the definition of the alleged wronged parties who were affected by the negligence of a defendant(s), you are automatically considered to be in the Class Action. That said, you have the right to opt out of the Class Action if you choose to do so. There will be a limited period of time for you to opt out, and this will be indicated in the certification order sent out after the proceeding is officially certified by the court.

However, be aware that once you opt out, you are no longer entitled to be included in any settlement given to class members if the case is resolved.
