  • jennell June 29, 2014

    the claim process was over on the 27th. there was an objection filed but it was overruled. From here since the people don’t want a trial Im hoping that the claims will be processed soon something like 90 days

    • james September 23, 2014

      The typical time it takes to resolve an appeal of this nature is 1-3 yrs. Do not expect payment for at least this long. Once they appeal the current court order, 2 more appeals are available to them

    Kim D you must be mistaken, the checks aren’t out yet. I emailed the claims admin and here’s the response I received:

    “The Court approved the Settlement at the Final Approval Hearing. However, the Court order has been appealed and Settlement distribution cannot commence until after all appeals have been resolved in favor of the Settlement. We do not know how long it will take to resolve the appeal. If you have any further questions, please let us know, or you may visit http://www.fitflopsettlement.com for more information.”

  • james January 6, 2015

    Is there any new news about when they start paying claims? Ive contacted the administrator but he/she refuses to respond.

  • john January 9, 2015

    These claims can take from 6 months to a year to payout & whenever the claims administrators feel like paying out, its really just a waiting game. With appeals sometimes longer. But its coming up on about a year, so hopefully soon!

  • Patricia January 16, 2015

    Is there any new updates?

  • Max January 22, 2015

    The case was appealed to the 9th Circuit, but the appeal was dismissed in October because the plaintiffs didn’t pay their court fees:

    “Filed order (Deputy Clerk: DEV) Dismissing case for failure to prosecute (Cir. Rule 42-1) Pursuant to Circuit Rule 42-1, this appeal is dismissed for failure to pay fees., This order served on the district court shall constitute the mandate of this court. [9282265] (DEV) [Entered: 10/20/2014 10:22 AM]”

    So it should be any time now.

    • sean January 29, 2015

      Please quitclying Max. Its not . helping anyone. The appeal has not been dismissed. There is no documentaion of such, and the xxx defense attorney office comfirmed that the appeal has not been dismissed.

  • MAXIE PRIEST January 23, 2015

    Thanks Max, any amount stated as yet ?

    • Max January 23, 2015

      No idea. I guess we’ll find out soon.

  • Constance Victoria Lane January 25, 2015

    I would like to get my settlement check soon. My pantry is bare and I need some cookies and icecream.

  • Cookie Monster January 26, 2015

    Me need Cookies too!!

  • jason January 28, 2015

    If the appeal was indeed denied, then they are held to the orgininal stipulated agreement, which states they must begin to pay claims within 10 days and complete payment of all claims within 30 days.

  • Colleen January 28, 2015

    I selected direct deposit instead of a paper check, and in my checking account history I show a pending deposit from this lawsuit scheduled for tomorrow. It doesn’t say how much, but somethings coming tomorrow.

    • Colleen January 29, 2015

      Sorry I jumped the gun a little. The prenotification in my checking was for 2 days out, so it will be in on Friday.

  • settlement January 29, 2015

    Hope this is true,someone should post the moment they recieve a check.

  • thomas January 29, 2015

    I contacted the settlement administrator, and they said the appeal was NOT dismissed, and that no payments are being made at this time. Im not sure why people are on here lying about pending deposits or appeals being dismissed, but those claims are untrue. When in doubt contact the Claims Administrator

    • Colleen January 29, 2015

      I am sorry that you think I am lying, but I assure you that I am not. I was just trying to give information to everyone. In the prenotification in my checking account it says “Rosales Action”, so since that is the person named in the lawsuit, I assume that is what the deposit is for. I will update when it shows up, with the amount. I am not trying to start false rumors, or get people excited with a lie, and I am sorry Thomas if I did something wrong by posting this information. After I update about deposit, I will not post ever again, because I was just trying to help, and I feel like I am being attacked.

  • Nicole January 29, 2015

    I also had a pending deposit of $0.00 to my account. It stated Rosales also. Nothing was deposited. Not sure if they were doing a test run to see if account was good. I saw it pending on Wednesday but no money posted.

    • Colleen January 29, 2015

      Thank you for that comment Nicole, I never thought of that, but that makes a lot of sense. I’m sure you’re right.
