Responders who had civil actions pending in, or on appeal from, one of the four Federal
district courts in New York State when Stieberger was settled were notified that they have the option of either proceeding with their
litigation or reopening under the class settlement.
Those proceeding with litigation waived any right to Stieberger reopening of that claim, but retained the right to reopening on other claims. Contact
the OGC Docket Section in the New York Regional Office (phone 212-264-2185) to determine
whether the right to Stieberger reopening on a given claim has been waived.
If the right to Stieberger reopening has not been waived, annotate the green jacket with “Civil Action Review - No Waiver” and continue with the regular screening process.
