Update on Corrected Notices Due to Hershey's Inaccurate Addresses Provided
Approximately 420 individuals were sent notice that contained an incorrect name due to a clerical error by Hershey's counsel that was not attributable to any of the Plaintiffs or their counsel and that resulted in Notices being sent to a present or former RSR's address that were addressed to the incorrect RSR. These individuals are being resent the Notice. The substance of the Notice is the same as the initial Notice sent with three exceptions: (1) the name has been corrected in the corrected Notice, (2) as a result of the re-mailing of the Notice, the June 30 deadline for these individuals to respond to the Notice if they wish has been extended to July 13, 2012 and (3) if these individuals opt-in to the case, the parties have agreed that the limitation period will be extended by two weeks due to these errors.
