On December 14, 2020, the Circuit Court of Cook County granted preliminary approval of a class action settlement in the lawsuit Roach v. Walmart, Inc., Case No. 2019-CH-01107 (the lawsuit).
Before any money is paid, the Court will decide whether to grant final approval of the settlement. The final approval hearing is scheduled for June 16, 2021. If the Court grants final approval of the settlement and there are no appeals, settlement payments will be distributed to class members who submitted timely and valid claim forms approximately two months later.
