There was a hearing on May 7, 2008 in which the court addressed whether each of us had adequately "opted out" of the proposed settlement. The court found that we had not followed the strict procedural requirements of opting out, and therefore ordered that you be served with a "supplemental notice" explainig the procedures to opt out of the proposed settlement.
While the precise term of the supplemental notice are confusing and overly complex, the main point is clear. In essence, while each of you previously thought you have opted out, YOU MUST AGAIN NOTIFY THE COURT THAT YOU INTEND TO OPT OUT OF THE SETTLEMENT.
Therefore, regardless of whatever action you have already taken, in order to successfully opt out of the proposed settlement you must at the latest by June 14. 2008 Email or mail directlt to the Garden City Group the following statement:
"I WISH TO OPT-OUT OF THE PROPOSED SETTLEMENT".
Email to: WatchRepairSettlement@gardencitygroup.com or mail to:

By opting out of this Settlement Proposal you will retain your legal rights against Richemont.
If you fail to take this action, you will be bound by the terms of the Proposal Settlement and give up your legal rights against Cartier/Richemont.
