JND Legal Administration Successfully Closes Major Class Action Settlement Administrations

JND Legal Administration, a management and administration company delivering service lines in class action, mass tort, corporate restructuring, government services and eDiscovery, today announced the successful completion of several major complex class action settlements. The cases were performed by JND’s Class Action Administration division, an award winning subsidiary of JND Legal Administration.

Spanning large class sizes and substantial settlement funds, each with nuanced allocation requirements, these completed settlement administrations required deep experience to navigate each unique case and ensure the best approach to achieve the class action participation and successful settlement funds. JND’s Class Action Administration team worked closely with clients to develop a tailored approach for each distinct case to successfully structure, manage and close each settlement.

“Our goal is to do what we have always done in this business – attract some of the largest, most intricate cases in the industry,” said Jennifer Keough, JND Legal Administration co-founder and CEO of JND Class Action Administration. “Our primary focus is following through with tangible results for our clients, bringing to bear our innovation, excellent client service and exhaustive attention to detail.”

  • JND Class Action Administration allocated a settlement fund of nearly $112 million to a class of 178,000 in Fitzgerald Farms LLC v. Chesapeake Operating Inc. The claim related to the calculation of royalties on natural gas wells, and the fees and expenses previously deducted, including gathering, compression, dehydration, treatment and processing.

    Administering the settlement fund to individual well owners, the team allocated the funds to claimants based on factors including the gas volume and percent ownership of the wells. Balancing the numerous variables in play within this complex settlement, JND Class Action Administration successfully distributed more than 92,000 settlement checks.
  • In Holt v. HHH Motors, JND Class Action Administration helped structure the settlement administration process of a claim brought against an automobile dealership. Working with all parties, the Class Action Administration team designed a settlement benefit that incorporated both cash payments and vouchers for dealership services for the 13,600 automobile purchasers who were members of the class.
  • For the 107,000 claimants who applied for the General Relief welfare program in Guillory v. Los Angeles County, JND Class Action Administration exhausted all avenues to maximize class participation.

    Taking into consideration that most individuals within this class were indigent, JND Class Action Administration knew a standard notice and claims process would not be sufficient; instead, JND installed poster notices in over 700 libraries and shelters, updated the municipality’s general relief website with settlement information, and worked with the relief office to flag class members and identify them whenever they visited an office.

JND’s Class Action Administration subsidiary has been voted by the National Law Journal as a Best Claims Administrator five years in a row and is trusted by law firms and Fortune 500 companies to manage their settlements.
