HP Pavilion Settlement

On March 20, 2008, U.S. District Court Judge Ronald M. Whyte, Northern District of California, entered an order approving a settlement of the class action lawsuit brought by owners of certain models of Hewlett Packard (“HP”) Pavilion notebook computers. Under the settlement, Notebook owners are entitled to repairs, cash reimbursement for out of pocket repair expenses, and/or discount coupons, each described in more detail in the Notice found at www.hpnotebooksettlement.com. Notice and Claim Forms were emailed to class members and notice was published in both USA Today and U.S. News and World Report.

Claims for relief were due postmarked no later than April 4, 2008. Claims received postmarked later than April 4, 2008 will not be processed or approved.

The www.hpnotebooksettlement.com website is the most comprehensive resource for information about the settlement. In addition to providing a copy of the Notice describing the lawsuit, your rights to obligations as a class member, and the deadline for claims, you will also find answers to many commonly asked questions, a copy of the Settlement Agreement, copies of the complaints that precipitated the settlement, and a description of how to locate the model, SKU and serial number of your notebook to determine whether your notebook is included in the settlement.

If you have a notebook that is not listed in the Notice, then the Settlement Agreement does not apply to you. Accordingly, the Settlement does not bind you or release any rights you may have to bring a claim against HP within the appropriate statute of limitations. In that event, we do not represent you through this settlement, and you should take whatever steps you deem necessary to preserve any claims you may have.

If you have any questions about the settlement that remain unanswered, or that are not answered at www.hpnotebooksettlement.com. Feel free to contact us.
