Cy Pres Award

After a class action lawsuit settles, if a non-active class member does not claim their amount of the settlement funds, funds may be disbursed via a cy presaward. A cy pres award is the distribution of money from a class action settlement to a charitable organization. See below for detailed cases and award amounts disbursed to AARP Foundation.  

Harris et al v. Amgen Inc. et al

Harris v. Amgen was initially brought in the Central District of California over 10 years ago.  In sum, the complaint in the case alleged that the fiduciaries of two retirement plans administered for the benefit of employees of the large pharmaceutical company Amgen, Inc., violated their fiduciary duties to the participants and beneficiaries of those retirement plans under ERISA by allowing investment in company stock during a time when they knew or should have known that company stock was unreasonably risky. The company’s stock price eventually suffered a significant although not dramatic decline, and the company’s retirement plans were damaged in connection with their investment in company stock.  After several district court dismissals followed by successful appeals the Ninth Circuit -- and two trips to the Supreme Court -- the parties settled the case in its entirety in early 2017 for $2.75 million as well as several non-monetary benefits including structural reforms to the retirement plans of the company.   The cash amount of the settlement, less costs and fees, was distributed last year.  Following that distribution, a balance remained in the Settlement Fund due to uncashed checks. These funds were distributed to AARP Foundation. This case was litigated by Gainey McKenna & Egleston and Wolf Haldenstein.
