If you are a Settlement Group member, you can object to the Settlement.
The Court cannot order a larger (or smaller, or otherwise different) settlement; it can only approve or deny the Settlement. If the Court denies approval, there will be no settlement at this time, no Settlement payments will be sent out, and the Lawsuit will continue.
Any objection to the proposed Settlement must be signed and in writing. Your statement must contain your name, the legal and factual basis for the objection, and whether it applies to you or the settlement of the class action, the settlement of the PAGA action, or the entire settlement. If you do not follow these instructions to make an objection, you will waive any objections and will be foreclosed from making any objection (whether by appeal or otherwise) to the Settlement. If you file a timely written objection, you may, but are not required to, appear at the Final Approval Hearing, either in person or through your own attorney. If you appear through your own attorney, you are responsible for hiring and paying that attorney. All written comments and objections and supporting papers must (a) clearly identify the case name and number (as Clayborne v. Chevron U.S.A., Inc., et al., Case No. 19-cv-07624-JSW), (b) be submitted to the Court either by mailing them to the Class Action Clerk, United States District Court for the Northern District of California, 1301 Clay Street, Oakland, CA 94612, or by filing them in person at any location of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, and (c) be filed or postmarked on or before May 22, 2023.
