IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING AVAILABLE settlement FUNDs
december 2015

As outlined in the Notice dated November 12, 2015, the Court approved a Close-Out Program that anticipated that the Settlement Fund would be exhausted by the end of Quarter One 2016. The notice also explained that claims will receive relief on a first come first served basis.

BASED ON THE CURRENT RESPONSE LEVEL, ALL CLAIM FORMS that were RECEIVED ON OR AFTER DECEMBER 12, 2015 ARE CURRENTLY ON HOLD UNTIL CLAIMS RECEIVED PRIOR TO THAT DATE HAVE BEEN SATISFIED.


EXTENSION OF ALL KITEC CLAIM DEADLINES - LIMITED FUNDS

On February 26, 2014, the Court extended all deadlines for owners of Clark County homes that contain Kitec plumbing systems to file claims requesting the available settlement relief. The Court extended the deadlines by three (3) years or until the limited funds are exhausted. The Court also opened up the settlement relief program to individuals who were previously barred either because they failed to act before the applicable deadline, their home was not included in the original Kitec fittings litigation, or they previously opted out of this class action.

During the week ending March 28, 2014, the claims administrator mailed this letter along with a claim form to over 6,250 potential class members.

This Notice will appear in the Nevada Section of the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Sunday, March 30, 2014 and the following three Mondays: April 7, 14 and 21, 2014. To download the Proof of Claim form referenced in this Notice, click here.

Additionally this letter will be mailed to over 150 licensed plumbing contractors operating in Clark County for information purposes.

Funds for this relief program are limited and claims will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. Class members must ACT NOW or risk being permanently barred from receiving any relief related to the defective Kitec fittings installed in their homes.
