Animation Workers Antitrust Litigation

Welcome to the Animation Workers Antitrust Settlements Website 

UPDATE: On June 5, 2017, the order granting final approval of the settlement was entered. The settlement administrator is currently calculating eligible distribution amounts based on the various payroll and HR data provided by the defendants. This is a time consuming process, for which there are no shortcuts, as everyone wants to ensure calculations are done accurately across different sources of data. The claims administrator expects to be prepared to distribute the settlement proceeds by late April 2018.
