You may be entitled to a cash payment from a class action settlement fund if you have or had an ADT residential security system that included wireless sensors.
This notice affects you if, between November 13, 2009 and August 15, 2016, you first entered into a contract with ADT or an ADT dealer for installation of a residential security system, or if you had ADT or an ADT dealer install a residential security system, that includes at least one wireless peripheral sensor. Pursuant to a proposed class action settlement, and subject to the approval of the Court, ADT has agreed to pay $16 million to eligible ADT customers, less administrative costs, attorneys' fees and expenses, and representative service awards. You must, however, submit a claim form to claim your share of the proposed settlement fund. The Court authorized publication of this notice in addition to email and other written notice you may receive. This is a summary of the Settlement and your legal rights.
What is the lawsuit about? Several consumers around the country have sued ADT, alleging that ADT failed to disclose that the wireless peripheral sensors used in its residential security systems can be jammed or disrupted and thus allegedly pose security risks. ADT denies these allegations, denies liability, and asserts numerous defenses. The suit is a class action, meaning that the customers who sued (the "class representatives") asked for relief not only for themselves, but for all similarly situated consumers. Without admitting liability or fault, ADT has agreed to pay $16 million to compromise those claims. The settlement, however, does not release any of your claims for personal injuries or for damage to or loss of property. The parties have entered into a Settlement Agreement which will be presented to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in the action Edenborough v. ADT LLC, Case No. 16-cv-02233.
What benefits does the settlement provide ? The settlement funds will be used to pay eligible class members, pay the legal fees incurred by the class representatives (up to 25% of the settlement fund) plus expenses, and service awards to each of the class representatives as awarded by the Court, in varying amounts up to a maximum of $10,000. If the Court approves the settlement, ADT customers who meet the eligibility criteria and submit a timely, valid claim form will receive a share of the settlement amount, estimated at $15 and $45 depending on the date of their contracts. These payment amounts may be adjusted up or down depending on the number of Claim Forms received, so as to fully and fairly allocate and pay out the entire net settlement fund to Class Members who submit Claim Forms. None of the money in the settlement fund will revert back to ADT.
Tax Consequences of Settlement . Any benefits you receive may or may not be the subject of state or federal taxation depending on your individual circumstances. Class Counsel are not tax attorneys and you are advised to seek separate legal advice on matters of taxation.
How can you get a payment ? Detailed information about the settlement and the claim submission process is posted on the settlement website and can also be obtained by calling the number below. You must be a class member and submit a Claim Form on or before February 26, 2018 to get a payment.
What other options do you have ? If you would prefer not to be part of the settlement and not get a payment, you have the right to ask the Court to exclude you. To do so, you must complete and submit a request for exclusion by January 2, 2018 . If you want to be part of the settlement but object to its terms, you or your attorney can submit written objections and/or appear at the final approval hearing discussed below. To do so, you must complete and submit your objection by January 2, 2018 .
Final Approval Hearing . The Court will hold a hearing on February 1, 2018 , at which time it will consider any objections, decide what fees to award, and decide whether to approve the Settlement.
