  • Deadline for Submitting a Claim: August 12, 2024.  Detailed Instructions on submitting a claim can be found here.
  • Deadline for Requesting Exclusion: June 26, 2024. If you ask to be excluded, your financial institution will not get any payment as part of this Settlement, and you cannot object to this Settlement. Your financial institution will not be legally bound by anything that happens in the Settlement and related proceedings. Your financial institution may be able to sue (or continue to sue) Wawa in the future. If you object to the Settlement and seek to exclude your financial institution, you will be deemed to have excluded your financial institution. Detailed instructions on how to exclude your financial institution from the Settlement can be found here.
  • Deadline for Submitting an Objection: June 26, 2024. If your financial institution is a Settlement Class Member, you can object to the Settlement if you do not think it is fair, reasonable, or adequate. You can give reasons why you think the Court should not approve it. The Court will consider your views. If you both object to the Settlement and seek to exclude your financial institution, your financial institution will be deemed to have excluded itself and your objection will be deemed null and void.  Detailed instructions for objecting to the settlement can be found here.
  • Final Approval Hearing: December 18, 2024. The Court will hold a Final Approval Hearing at 10:00 a.m. on December 18, 2024, in Courtroom 10-B before U.S. District Judge Gene E.K. Pratter of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, James A. Byrne U.S. Courthouse, 601 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106, or at such other time, location, and venue as the Court may Order. This hearing date and time may be moved.  Please refer to the Settlement Status page for notice of any changes. At the Final Approval Hearing, the Court will consider, among other things, whether the Settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate; how much Class Counsel will receive as attorneys’ fees and costs and expenses; and whether to approve service awards to the Settlement Class Representatives. If there are objections, the Court will consider them. The Court will listen to people at the hearing who file in advance a timely notice of their intention to appear (see instructions here). At or after the Final Approval Hearing, the Court will decide whether to approve the Settlement. There is no deadline by which the Court must make its decision.
