$20,200,816.17 Settlement Fund Proposed for Blue Parking Placard Litigation to be Divided Among Class Members Who Submit a Valid Claim Form.

A class action lawsuit claimed the State of Texas $5.00 fee for a blue parking placard utilized by persons with permanent disabilities violated federal law. On July 7, 2008, a Federal Judge determined the fee was illegal and directed the parties to meet to discuss reimbursement to Class Members. To qualify for reimbursement, a valid claim form must be submitted.

Austin, TX (PRWEB) January 17, 2010 -- A settlement has been proposed in a class action lawsuit about the fees charged to purchasers of blue parking placards for persons with permanent disabilities, between August 11, 1995 and July 7, 2008. To qualify and receive a reimbursement, a claim form must be submitted by March 5, 2010. To file a claim form, visit and click on ‘Claim Process’.

The Court will hold a hearing in this case (Meyers, et al. v. State of Texas, et al., Case No. A-00-CA-430-SS) on January 29, 2010, at 2:00 p.m., in Courtroom 2, of the United States Courthouse, 200 West 8th Street, Austin, Texas 78701, to consider whether to approve the settlement and to consider a request by attorneys representing all Class Members (Skelton & Woody, of Austin, Texas; Peterson & Myers, P.A., of Lakeland, Florida; and Robert G. Fegers, P.L., of Winter Haven, Florida; Fryar Law Firm Houston, Texas; and Lewis Saul and Associates, PC of New York, NY) for up to $3,900,000.00 in attorneys’ fees, for investigating the facts, litigating the case since 1997, and negotiating the settlement. The attorneys’ fees will not reduce the Settlement Fund and will be paid separately by the State.

The State of Texas will provide $20,200,816.17 to a Settlement Fund to be divided among all Class Members who send in a valid claim form. The amount of reimbursement to each individual will depend on the number of valid claim forms Class Members submit but will not exceed the amount actually paid. Representative Plaintiffs and Class Counsel believe reimbursement to Class Members will equal 85% to 100% of the money paid by Class Members. Access to view the Settlement Agreement and to obtain a claim form.
