You have the right to not be part of the Settlement by excluding yourself or “opting out” of the Class. If you wish to exclude yourself, you must do so on or before November 12, 2020 as described below. You do not need to hire your own lawyer to request exclusion from the Class. If you exclude yourself from the Class, you give up your right to receive sales tax, title and tag fees, prejudgment interest, or any other benefits as part of this settlement, and you will not be bound by any judgments or orders of the District Court, whether favorable or unfavorable. However, you will keep your right to sue any of the GEICO Defendants separately in another lawsuit if you choose to pursue one.
To exclude yourself from this lawsuit and/or preserve your right to bring a separate case, you must make a request to be excluded in writing and, with sufficient postage, mail the request to:
RothJoffe Class Action Settlement
c/o JND Legal Administration

Seattle, WA 98111

Your request for exclusion must contain the following:
- The name of either Roth or Joffe lawsuit;
- Your full name;
- Your current address;
- A clear statement that you wish to be excluded from the Class, such as: “I request exclusion from the Class”; and
- Your signature.
The Settlement Administrator will file your request for exclusion with the District Court. If you are signing on behalf of a Class Member as a legal representative (such as an estate, trust or incompetent person), please include your full name, contact information, and the basis for your authority. A request for exclusion must be exercised individually and not on behalf of a group.
IF YOU DO NOT EXCLUDE YOURSELF FROM THE CLASS BY THE POSTMARK DEADLINE OF NOVEMBER 12, 2020, YOU WILL REMAIN PART OF THE CLASS AND WILL BE BOUND BY THE ORDERS OF THE DISTRICT COURT IN THIS LAWSUIT AND BY THE TERMS OF THE SETTLEMENT IF IT IS APPROVED BY THE COURT, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT SUBMIT A CLAIM FOR PAYMENT.
