Appeals have since been filed contesting final approval of the Settlement, and these appeals will postpone resolving claim calculations. A hearing on these appeals was held on January 28, 2010, at the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia. The court gave no indication as to when a decision will be made. No payments will be made on eligible claims until all appeals are resolved. It is uncertain how long these appeals will take to resolve, and the timing of resolving the appeals is not within our control. The appeals may take several additional months or longer to resolve before the settlement becomes final and funds can be distributed to eligible claimants."
