12.5 Million People Want to Know … What Up’s with the Fogel Settlement?

Published on

By the end of this week, 12.5 million current and former Farmers insurance customers across the country will get a notice in the mail about a pending class action settlement.  That notice provides consumers information about their rights under the settlement, which provides $455 million to consumers. Consumer Watchdog has intervened in the lawsuit to object to the settlement on the following grounds:

  • "The claims-made process is not fair and will likely produce a windfall" for Farmers.
  • "Paying unclaimed settlement funds to the Exchanges [controlled by Farmers] is improper and does not guarantee any minimum benefit to the class."
  • "The proposed settlement contains a grossly overbroad release" of legal claims by the class.
