Exclusion Request Form
If you exclude yourself from the Class – which is sometimes called "opting-out" of the Class – you won't get any Settlement Benefits from the Proposed Settlement. However, you may then be able to separately sue or continue to sue StarKist for the legal claims that are the subject of this lawsuit. If you exclude yourself, you will not be legally bound by the Court's judgments in this Proposed Settlement.
If you bring your own lawsuit against StarKist after you exclude yourself, you will have to hire and pay your own lawyer for that lawsuit, and you will have to prove your claims. If you do exclude yourself so you can start or continue your own lawsuit against StarKist, you should talk to your own lawyer soon, because your claims may be subject to a statute of limitations.
To exclude yourself from the Class, you must send a written request for exclusion that is received no later than November 20, 2015.
