Zilinsky v. LeafFilter North Settlement

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO, EASTERN DIVISION


This website will be updated with additional information and documents in October.


You may have received a notice because the business records of LeafFilter North, LLC (“LeafFilter”) show that you are the owner of a LeafFilter Gutter System and you opened a service ticket with LeafFilter relating to Debris Accumulation. You may be eligible to receive certain benefits from a class action settlement. Benefits of the settlement include receipt of three (3) Vouchers for future Debris Accumulation Cleanings (normally a $285 value) at no additional cost to you.  Alternatively, you may be eligible to receive cash reimbursement up to $200 if you incurred out-of-pocket expenses for cleaning debris off the top of your LeafFilter Gutter System or removed your LeafFilter Gutter System entirely because of issues with Debris Accumulation.  You MUST submit a Claim Form to receive a benefit under this settlement. Claim Forms may be submitted via U.S. Mail or online through the Settlement Website.

 

Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act. Read the notice carefully.  If you know or suspect that your LeafFilter Gutter System has caused significant damage to your home, you should strongly consider excluding yourself from this Settlement (see below).

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS LAWSUIT

 

SUBMIT A CLAIM FORM

The only way for you to get reimbursement for Debris Accumulation Cleanings or removal of your LeafFilter Gutter System, and/or up to three Vouchers for future cleanings is to timely submit a valid Claim Form.

If you timely submit a valid Claim Form along with the required documentation by February 4, 2023, you can obtain reimbursement of eligible expenses and/or up to three Vouchers for future cleanings.

 

ASK TO BE EXCLUDED

Receive no reimbursement, no Vouchers for future cleanings, or other benefits. Get out of this lawsuit but keep your individual right to sue.

If you ask to be excluded, you will not be eligible for benefits from this settlement, but you will maintain your right to pursue an individual claim against LeafFilter North, LLC  about the claims in this lawsuit.

 

COMMENT OR  OBJECT

Comment in writing about why you like or don’t like the proposed settlement. You may comment in writing about why you like or dislike the proposed settlement by sending a letter to the Settlement Administrator, or by filing an objection with the Court on your own or through an attorney. In order to comment or object to the proposed settlement, you must remain a member of the Settlement Class (i.e., you cannot ask to be excluded).

 

 

DO NOTHING

Receive no reimbursement, no Vouchers for future cleanings, or other benefits. Give up your rights to sue.

By doing nothing, you will not be eligible for reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses or the up to three Vouchers for future cleanings, assuming you would otherwise qualify. You will also give up any rights to sue LeafFilter North, LLC on an individual basis separately about the claims in this lawsuit.

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 proposed settlement. Claim Forms will be processed and approved, and benefits and payments will be issued after the proposed settlement has been approved by the Court and becomes in all respects Final.
