Somogyi, et al. v. Freedom Mortgage Corp.

Case No. 1:17-cv-06546-RMB-JS (D. N.J.)

FMC Settlement

A United States Federal Court authorized the Notice and this Website.  This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

Your legal rights will be affected whether or not you act.  Please read the Notice carefully.


Your rights may be affected by the proposed settlement (“Settlement”) of this class action lawsuit (the “Action”) if you are a client of defendant Freedom Mortgage Corp. (“FMC”) in the United States whose mortgage FMC serviced and who, during the period September 1, 2013 through July 22, 2019 (the “Class Period”), received one or more calls or voicemails made by or on behalf of FMC to any one or more of the client’s cellular, voice over internet protocol (VOIP), residential, or landline phone numbers (the “Settlement Class” or “Settlement Class Members”).

For purposes of the Settlement Class, “client” shall mean borrowers and co-borrowers, spouses, and successors-in-interest, who shall collectively be deemed one client.

If you are covered by the above description of the Settlement Class, you may be entitled to a payment (unless you elect to exclude yourself from the Settlement Class).  If you received the postcard or email Notice, you are probably a Settlement Class Member.  In addition to the corporate compliance relief described more fully at page 2 of the Notice, if the Court approves the Settlement and you file a valid Claim Form, you also may be entitled to receive a cash payment of about $37.61, or significantly higher or lower depending on costs and fees and how many valid Claim Forms are filed, as described more fully at page 3 of the Notice


What are My Options?  As a Settlement Class Member, you have the following options:


DO NOTHING.
Get no payment.  Remain a Settlement Class Member.  Give up right to sue FMC concerning the released claims.
SUBMIT A CLAIM FORM ONLINE OR BY MAIL POSTMARKED BY JUNE 23, 2020.
If you wish to obtain a cash payment as a Settlement Class Member, you must complete and submit a Claim and Release Form (“Claim Form”) which is: (a) included with the postcard Notice sent to you; (b) available in the 'Documents' section of this website; or (c) by clicking 'Submit Claim' on the right-hand side of this webpage.  Claim Forms must be completed, signed and submitted to the Settlement Administrator online no later than 11:59 p.m. (ET) on June 23, 2020 or if by mail postmarked no later than June 23, 2020.
EXCLUDE YOURSELF FROM THE SETTLEMENT CLASS (OPT OUT) BY SUBMITTING A WRITTEN REQUEST FOR EXCLUSION SO THAT IT IS POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN JUNE 23, 2020.
Receive no payment pursuant to this Settlement.  This is the only option that allows you to ever potentially be part of any other lawsuit or other legal proceeding, such as arbitration if applicable, against FMC concerning the claims asserted in this Action.  Should you exclude yourself from the Settlement and the Action, you should understand that FMC will have the right to assert all defenses it may have to any claims that you may seek to assert including, among others, the defense that any such claims are untimely under applicable statutes of limitations and statutes of repose.
OBJECT TO THE SETTLEMENT SO THAT THE OBJECTION IS POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN JUNE 23, 2020.
Write to the Court about why you do not like the Settlement.  You can do this only if you do not exclude yourself.
