This is the latest about the Colvin v. Qwest (Retiree
Telephone Concession case). . .
Two days ago, there was a "fairness hearing" before
Otero County District Court Judge Michael
A. Schiferl. Before the hearing started, he reviewed
the combined 128 pages of documents counsel had sent to the
Court in support of a final judgment. No one appeared at
the hearing to object to the proposed settlement. However,
there were almost a dozen retirees present in support of the
Judge Schiferl entered the final order to put the
case to an end. Now, the settlement can be carried out.
Attached hereto is a copy of the final order signed by Judge
Qwest counsel stated that the company will send out
the claim form after the 45 day period has expired for
anyone to file an appeal. We do not expect anyone to file
an appeal. Anyhow, shortly after Monday, August 8, the
claim form should be received in the mail by the
approximately 3,300 affected retiree class members. A copy
of the claim form to be sent in the mail is attached as the
last two pages to Judge Schiferl's June 22 Order.
