Your rights may be affected by a class action settlement.

The Court has not decided who is right. More information can be found in the Long Form Notice available on this website.

Generally, a settlement avoids the costs and uncertainty of trial and related appeals, while providing benefits to Settlement Class Members when the Settlement becomes final. Here, the Court has not decided in favor of Plaintiffs or Hibbett. The Settlement Class Representatives and Class Counsel think the Settlement is in the best interests of everyone affected.
