Chicago Clearing Corporation's affiliate company, Mitena Partners, provides class action settlement recovery solutions beyond the world of financial litigations. Right now, the team at Mitena are ready to monetize claims in this settlement, are preparing to file claims on behalf of its clients once claim forms are available, and are always available to discuss the status of this litigation and the settlement process.


Please note: as we just mentioned, claim forms are not yet available and the courts have not yet set a claim filing deadline. Once claim forms are available, you will not need to use a third-party claim filer like Mitena Partners to file a claim. You may also contact the claims administrator or class counsel for no-cost assistance with your claim, or for any other information. Here is the link to the administrator's website.
