Objection of Mark Gullickson

Objectors Mark Gullickson
Signers Mark Gullickson
Attorneys Patrick Sweeney
Summary
  1. Claims process lacks sufficient oversight.
  2. There is no definite timeline for the claims administration process.
  3. A portion of the attorneys' fees should be withheld to provide adequate oversight.
  4. Attorneys' fees do not reflect actual recovery by the class.
  5. Attorneys' fees are excessive and not supported by the docket record.

NOTE:  Patrick Sweeney does not appear in the record for this case but the objection is nearly word for word identical to numerous Sweeney objections (see ex:  Lennartson v. Papa Murphy's).  Further, though Objector Gullickson is from California, the envelope the objection was submitted in features handwriting similar to Objector Sweeney's and the postmark is from Milwaukee, WI as are all Sweeney objections.
