What Is A Class Action Settlement?
A class action settlement is a resolution between disputing parties about a legal case, reached either before or after court action begins.

A class action settlement administrator like Simpluris is a court-appointed, neutral third-party who executes the terms and conditions of the settlement.

Government Looks to Prevent Litigation Epidemic As Businesses Reopen
As the government shifts its focus from coronavirus containment to restarting the economy, discussions have begun in Congress regarding the second pandemic relief bill, in particular, the issue of providing immunity for businesses from lawsuits related to the pandemic.

At the same time, employers want liability protection from workers who might get COVID-19 on the job and decide to sue. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who will oversee much of the coronavirus relief legislation, thinks a lawsuit shield for companies against possible claims must be included.
