Objecting to the Settlement

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.

Your objection must be in writing, and must include:

  • The name of this Litigation: the “Financial Institution Track” of In re Wawa, Inc. Data Security Litigation, Case No. 2:19-cv-06019 (E.D. Pa.);
  • Your financial institution’s full name, and the full name, address, email address, and telephone number of the person acting on its behalf; and
  • An explanation of the basis for why your financial institution is a Settlement Class Member;
  • Whether the objection applies only to your financial institution, to a specific subset of the Settlement Class, or to the entire Settlement Class;
  • All grounds for the objection stated with specificity, accompanied by any legal support for the objection;
  • The identity of all counsel who represent the objector, including any former or current counsel who may be entitled to compensation for any reason related to the objection to the Settlement Agreement, Class Counsel’s request for attorney’s fees, costs, and expenses, or the application for Service Awards;
  • The identity of all representatives (including counsel representing the objector) who will appear at the Final Approval Hearing;
  • A description of all evidence to be presented at the Final Approval Hearing in support of the objection, including a list of any witnesses, a summary of the expected testimony from each witness, and a copy of any documents or other non-oral material to be presented; and
  • Your signature on the written objection.

Any objection must be either filed electronically with the Court or mailed to the Clerk of the Court, Class Counsel, and Wawa’s counsel at the addresses set forth below. The objection must be electronically filed, or if mailed postmarked, no later than June 26, 2024.
