Filing a claim form and objecting to the settlement do not appear to be mutually exclusive. You can submit the claim paperwork and still object. The notice makes clear that objection to the settlement is done by class members and not those who have opted-out, thus one action should not interfere with the other. In other words, the objection is to the current settlement and not to receiving any sort of award. So, in effect, you would be saying that you object to the current settlement arrangement, but will, in the alternative, accept the award should the objection fail.
