WHAT IS THIS LAWSUIT ABOUT?

A proposed settlement of a class action entitled Donald Lollock, et al. vs. Oakmont Senior Living, LLC, et al. has been reached in the Superior Court of California, County of Alameda (case number RG17875110).

Plaintiffs allege that Oakmont made misleading statements and omissions about how resident evaluations would be used to determine, set and monitor staffing levels at Oakmont's assisted living facilities in California, which Plaintiffs allege resulted in monetary damages to residents. Oakmont denies all allegations and claims in the lawsuit and denies that it committed any wrongdoing. This settlement is not an admission of any wrongdoing by Oakmont.


WHAT DOES THE SETTLEMENT PROVIDE?

If the Court approves the proposed settlement and you do not request to be excluded from the Settlement Class the cash payment for each Settlement Class Member who paid a Community Fee during the Settlement Class Period will be approximately 37% of the amount of the Community Fee during the Settlement Class Period, depending on the amounts the Court awards for attorneys’ fees and costs. To be eligible for benefits under the settlement, you must be a Settlement Class Member or a legal successor of a deceased Settlement Class Member.



WHAT ARE MY RIGHT AND OPTIONS?

INCLUDE YOURSELF If you choose this option, you do not need to do anything, as you will automatically be included in the settlement class and seek money from the class settlement but you will give up your right to sue in a different case about the same subject matter.
REQUEST TO BE EXCLUDED BY NOVEMBER 13, 2020 If you do not wish to be included in the Settlement Class and receive a cash payment, you must send a letter stating that you want to be excluded from the Settlement Class in Donald Lollock, et al. v. Oakmont Senior Living, LLC et al., case no. RG17875110 (Superior Court of California, County of Alameda).

Be sure to include your name, your current address and telephone number, your signature (or that of the legal representative), and a statement that you wish to be excluded from the Settlement Class.

Donald Lollock, et al. v. Oakmont Senior Living, LLC et al.
c/o CPT Group, Inc.

Irvine, CA 92606

You cannot exclude yourself via telephone, fax, or email.

If you ask to be excluded, you will not get any settlement payment, and you cannot object to the settlement. However, you will not be legally bound by anything that happens in this lawsuit and you will keep your right to separately pursue claims against Oakmont relating to the subject matter of this lawsuit.

OBJECT TO THE SETTLEMENT BY NOVEMBER 13, 2020 If you are a Settlement Class Member (or a legal representative of such person), you can object to the settlement if you do not like any part of it, and the Court will consider your views.
