Are you negotiating a California class action settlement with a cy pres component? If so, we would love to be a recipient and we will help you in the process however we can.
The term cy pres is derived from a French phrase meaning "as near as." When class action lawsuits are settled or tried, there are times that it’s not possible to distribute all of the money recovered to some or all of the class members. The cy pres doctrine allows the funds to be distributed to a nonprofit charitable organization to support work that indirectly benefits the class and advances the public interest.
If you are a lawyer or law firm which has engaged in class action litigation in any California state or federal court within the past 24 months, particularly in the wage and hour, food mislabeling, and dietary supplement contexts, our hope is that you will consider recommending OCTLC as a cy pres recipient on one or more of your cases.
