To All SURS University Retirees who are part of the Kanerva Lawsuit:
SUAA's attorneys are still working diligently to significantly reduce the amount of attorneys' fees and costs that might be taken out of the health insurance refunds. Because any member of the class will be paying a portion of their refund towards attorneys' fees the law requires that they be given an opportunity to object. In this case, each member that does not opt-out may file a written objection. We have created a simple online form that you can complete that will generate a written objection to Class Counsel. The form also provides you the opportunity to give SUAA's lawyers your contact information in the event additional support is needed.

Supreme Court denied all of the Amicus Briefs - one filed by the Attorney General and the 10 in support of the Attorney General. As a result the motion for extension will be denied as moot. Therefore the plaintiff's response brief will only need to address the State's opening brief!
