  2. I always thought packaged ice market must be rigged. I’m confused about the settlement classes – are the payouts only if one is in Settlement Class II?

    • I believe that if you exclude yourself from Settlement Class II, you are still part of Settlement Class I which might be part of a later settlement. That’s how I understand it at least.

      ” the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan resolves certain claims for all Settlement Class Members in connection with the Home City settlement, except for those who exclude themselves from Settlement Class II. If you exclude yourself from Settlement Class II, you will still remain a member of Settlement Class I and the Court will still resolves all issues for all you in connection with that part of the settlement that impacts the rights of Settlement Class I members. “
