A little late on getting this posted, but an opinion came out on the fee fight appeals (9th Cir. case numbers: 13-57061 & 13-57159 – Opinion: Filed May 11, 2016).
Naturally the outcome is yet further delay on any finalization of this settlement.
The 9th kicked this matter back down on remand AND directed it to be reassigned to a different judge.
Sooooo disbursement of funds expected at some point prior to January 1,
