Has Concerns About Tiered Payments
You won’t be getting your payment from the 2014 Freedom Industries – West Virginia American Water crisis and resulting class-action lawsuit anytime soon.
Federal Judge John Copenhaver denied a proposed settlement saying he has concerns about the tiered payment schedule and payments to lawyers.
Individuals were to get more than $500. However, critics say lawyers were getting about 50-percent of the settlement.
The lawsuit isn’t dead. A new settlement plan is being worked on.
