The American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) has partnered with Class Action Capital, a market leader in managing class action settlement claims, to assist AHCA/NCAL members with optimizing recoveries in class action settlements.

Many healthcare facilities do not have the time or resources available to properly file and manage settlement claims. Class Action Capital will work on your behalf, in coordination with AHCA/NCAL, to submit fully comprehensive claims, while minimizing the use of your time, internal resources and the risk of mistake if you were to take on the claims management process on your own. Through the partnership with AHCA/NCAL, Class Action Capital will identify healthcare and non-healthcare recovery opportunities, ensuring your organization does not miss out on often unknown recovery opportunities.

Below are the latest settlement opportunities available for American Health Care Association Members.

Settlement Opportunities:

Lithium Ion Batteries Indirect Purchaser Settlement – $106,950,000 (with more expected)

This lawsuit claims the defendants and their co-conspirators engaged in an unlawful conspiracy to fix, raise, maintain or stabilize the prices of Lithium Ion Battery Cells (Li-Ion Cells) in violation of U.S. and state antitrust, unfair competition and consumer protection laws by agreeing to fix prices and restrict output of Lithium Ion Battery Cells causing consumers to pay more than necessary.
All persons or entities from January 1, 2000 through May 31, 2011 who indirectly purchased a Li-Ion Battery or Li-Ion Products containing Lithium Ion Batteries or Battery Packs for their own use and not for resale are eligible for the settlement.
Eligibility: The Lithium Ion Batteries Indirect Purchaser Antitrust Settlement will reimburse all persons and entities who, from January 1, 2000 through May 31, 2011, indirectly purchased a Lithium Ion Battery (“Li-Ion Batteries”) or Lithium Ion Products (“Li-Ion Products”) containing Lithium Ion Battery Packs in the United States for their own use and not for resale from one or more of the Defendants. Li-Ion Products include portable computers, power tools and camcorders.
Deadline: July 19, 2019

Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Antitrust Litigation – $610,000,000

The case alleges that from 1995-2007, leading electronics manufacturers colluded to fix and maintain the cost of cathode ray tube screens and monitors, resulting in businesses and consumers paying more for computers, televisions and other products than they would have in a competitive market.
The case resulted in settlements totaling approximately $610,000,000 on behalf of all persons and businesses that indirectly purchased CRT products for their own use and not for resale (“End Users”) that purchased CRT products in Arizona, California, the District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Although these settlements also released the claims of End Users in the states of Massachusetts, Missouri and New Hampshire, End Users in these states were not permitted to participate in the prior claims processes in 2015 and 2016 for the first $576,750,000 of the settlement fund.
Class members from the states of Massachusetts, Missouri and New Hampshire were forced to release their claims but were not entitled to recover funds from the settlement funds, and appealed approval of the court’s previous settlements. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit agreed that class members in these states were treated unfairly and should have been entitled to participate in the settlement fund.
