The settlement offers every class member (former Russell Building tenants) the opportunity to recover full compensation for everything that he or she lost in the fire.
The deadline for class members to submit claims under the settlement is September 11, 2017. Any class member who does not submit a claim by that date will not receive any compensation for their losses in the January 2015 fire. If you are a class member and need assistance assembling your proofs or completing the claim form, please contact Daniel Lapinski or Abby Resnick-Parigian.
