If you are a Settlement Class Member, unless you exclude yourself from the Settlement, you cannot sue, continue to sue, or be part of any other lawsuit against the Released Parties for the Released Claims. It also means that all the decisions by the Court will bind you.
The Released Claims mean that all Settlement Class Members, on behalf of themselves and their agents, heirs, executors and administrators, successors, assigns, insurers, and representatives (the “Releasing Parties”), will release and forever discharge GSK, and its administrators, insurers, reinsurers, agents, firms, parent companies/corporations, sister companies/corporations, subsidiaries and affiliates, and any sales agents and distributors, wholesalers, retailers, or any other party in the chain of distribution and retail sale of the Covered Products, and all of the foregoing Persons’ respective predecessors, successors, assigns and present and former officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, attorneys, insurers, and representatives (collectively, the ‘Released Parties”), from each and every claim of liability, on any legal or equitable ground whatsoever, including relief under federal law or the laws of any state, regarding or related to the Covered Products, including without limitation, their manufacture, purchase, use, marketing, promotion, or sale, and including without limitation, all past, present, or future claims, damages, or liability on any legal or equitable ground whatsoever, known or unknown, that were or could have been asserted in this Lawsuit based on any assertion or contention that the Covered Products, including their packaging, labels, sale, warranties, and/or any advertising or marketing whatsoever, was inaccurate, misleading, false, deceptive, fraudulent, or breached.
The Released Claims do not include any claim against the Released Parties for personal injuries. More information regarding the Released Claims and Released Parties can be found here.
