The vast majority of class actions are settled if the court certifies the case as a class action or if the defendant believes it is certified. Class members are notified of the proposed transaction and have the opportunity to join or oppose its terms. Some types of class actions require you to submit an opt-in form to join.

Some extend over many years, while others are settled in a relatively short period of time. Normal hourly rates, as stated in the agreement, were 450 $US for Keith Keogh, 505 $US for David Philipps and 425 $US for Halbert. . . .
