Objection of Patrick Sweeney

Objectors Patrick Sweeney
Signers Patrick Sweeney
Attorneys
Summary
  1. Claims administration lacks sufficient oversight.
  2. Time frames are designed to benefit settling parties, not the class.
  3. Attorneys' fees are excessive and divorced from the recovery of the class.
  4. Notice is inadequate.

NOTE:  Class Counsel, Defendants, and the Court found Mr. Sweeney's class membership dubious at best since he provided no proof and his name was not found in the Defendant's records.
