This notice informs you of a proposed settlement of three class action lawsuits called McAllister v. The St. Louis Rams, LLC, No. 4:16-CV-00172-SNLJ, Envision v. The St. Louis Rams, LLC, No. 4:16-CV- 00262, and Arnold v. The St. Louis Rams, LLC, No. 4:16-CV-00297. This settlement affects individuals who owned personal seat licenses, or “PSLs,” as of the end of the 2015 NFL football season. PSLs were contracts that provided their owners certain rights to purchase season tickets to St. Louis Rams home games.
If you meet the qualifications to be a Class Member, the proposed settlement, if approved, will pay you an Award based on your PSL’s tier price in the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri, for each PSL you owned, as follows:
|PSL Tier Price||Pay-Out for Qualified Claim|
The settlement resolves plaintiffs’ allegations that, when the Rams relocated to Los Angeles, the Rams violated rights that the plaintiffs had under two types of PSL agreements: the Rams PSL Agreement and the FANS PSL Agreement. The Court has certified a class for each type of agreement, so that there is a “Rams Class” and a “FANS Class.” The Rams deny all claims of wrongdoing and have agreed to a proposed Settlement Agreement in order to avoid incurring further expenses and burdens relating to this lawsuit.
The settlement avoids costs and risks from continuing the lawsuit; pays money to Class Members; and releases the Rams from liability.
Lawyers for the Rams Class and FANS Class will ask the Court to order the Rams to pay fees and expenses for investigating the facts, litigating the case, and negotiating the settlement. The Rams have agreed not to oppose Class Counsel’s request for payments up to $7,400,000 for attorneys’ fees and expenses and $50,000 in the aggregate to the class representatives. Any amount approved by the Court for fees and expenses will not alter the amount paid to Class Members.
Your legal rights are affected whether you act, or don’t act. Read this notice carefully.
|Your Legal Rights in this Settlement|
|Submit A Claim Form||The only way to find out if you qualify for a payment.|
|Exclude Yourself||Opt-out and get no payment. Unless you exclude yourself, you give up any right to sue the Rams for the claims that this settlement resolves.|
|Object||Write to the Court about why you don’t like the settlement. You will remain a part of the Class and will be entitled to payment if you qualify and submit a claim form, but may still object to the settlement.|
|Go To A Hearing||Ask to speak in Court about the fairness of the settlement.|
|Do Nothing||Get no payment. Give up rights.|
These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in this notice.
The Court still has to decide whether to approve the settlement. Payments will be made if the Court approves the settlement and after appeals (if there are any) are resolved. Please be patient.
