Schultz, et al. v. District of Columbia, et al.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

Case No. 1:18-cv-00120 (ABJ)

If you were arrested and detained at a location on or near 12th and L Street, NW in Washington, D.C., in connection with demonstrations against the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017, you may be eligible to receive a cash payment, an order expunging your arrest record, or both. 

You may be affected by a class action settlement based on your arrest and detention by the District of Columbia. To claim payment and be eligible to have your arrest record expunged you must take action by August 6, 2021. 


YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS SETTLEMENT

Submit a Claim Form: You will get a payment, be eligible to have your arrest record expunged, or both if you qualify. This is the only way to get a payment or expungement from this settlement. Deadline to submit a claim form is August 6, 2021.

Opt-Out: You will get no payment or expungement from this settlement, but you maintain the right to file your own lawsuit about the legal claims in this case if you do so in the time the law allows. Deadline to opt out is August 6, 2021.

Object in Writing: You may write to the Court about why you do not like the settlement. You may do this regardless of whether you submit a claim form. Deadline to object in writing is August 6, 2021.

Request to Participate in a Hearing: You may ask to speak in a Court hearing about the fairness of the settlement. You may do this regardless of whether you submit a claim form. Deadline to Request to Participate is August 6, 2021.

Do Nothing: You will get no payment AND will give up your right to file your own lawsuit. You will not be eligible to have your arrest record expunged as part of this settlement, but you will still have the right to seek expungement on your own.


These rights and options – and the deadlines to exercise them – are explained in the Notice.

The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the settlement. Payments and record expungements will only be made if the Court approves the settlement, and only after any appeals are resolved. Please be patient.
