Appeals over; Payment Expected Summer 2015

Appeals over; Payment Expected Summer 2015

We met with the State’s lawyers recently to discuss the status of the case.  The State’s lawyers indicated that they will no longer pursue any other avenues of appeal but plan on waiting to pay the judgment until July 2015, after the next budget is passed by the legislature.  This is quite a remarkable position to take since it means the State will incur about $9 million in interest over the next year.  It’s a good investment for the class but we know it is causing a tremendous hardship to many individuals.  We will continue pressing the State to make good on its debts now.  We will keep you updated.
