Because of the numerous requests from our faithful users, we’ve reached out to the Settlement Administrator of the Black Farmers Settlement to ask when checks will be disbursed. This is the response we received:“Thank you for your email in the Settlement of In Re Black Farmers Discrimination Litigation. All claim forms are currently being reviewed and final determinations by the Neutral have not yet been made. Determinations will not be announced until all claims have been decided by the Neutral, which could be as late as the end of 2012 or the beginning of 2013. After notices of determination have been sent to Claimants, claims that have been granted will be sent their awards. At this point, no awards have been mailed or announced.”
So, no one has received an award yet but apparently claimants will receive notices of determination once all the claims are processed. Seems like early 2013 is the date to expect a notice.
We’ll try to stay on top of this. Check back regularly for more information as we get it.
Don’t forget to apply for your other eligible settlements.
