On December 8, 2005, Judge Emilie Elias of the Los Angeles County Superior Court granted preliminary approval to a settlement of the class action and conditionally certified a class of all end-user persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired in the United States, for their own use and not for resale, a new Toshiba satellite Pro 6100 Series notebook computer. The exact terms are explained in the official notice which has been mailed and e-mailed to all known class members. In general terms, the settlement includes an extended warranty for all satellite Pro 6100 computers, cash compensation for certain repairs, and reimbursement for certain out-of-warranty repair expenses. A settlement hearing will be held on March 17, 2006 for the court to determine whether the settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate and whether it should be approved by the Court. The official Court-approved notice will have much more detailed information related to the Settlement. The Claims Administrator overseeing the submission of claims for this matter is the Garden City Group (GCG). GCG has established a web site for all Satellite Pro 6100 class members as follows: sp6100settlement.com.
