Last day for class action lawsuit

Today is the deadline to "opt-in" to a class action lawsuit over property contamination.

Parts of East Hill in Pensacola were contaminated by chemical companies prior to 1975.  Up to 5,000 people who currently own property in that area may be able to share in a 9.5 million dollar settlement.

A "fairness hearing" will be held on September 4 at the county courthouse.... and a judge will decide if the settlement should be approved.
Eligible property owners have been mailed a claims form.  If you need another copy, or have questions call the claims administrator at 1-866-742-4955.
