- A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about whether the San Diego Association of Governments (“SANDAG” or “Defendant”) improperly collected and shared with third parties the “Personally Identifiable Information” (“PII”) of operators of motor vehicles that used the South Bay Expressway (State Route 125) and/or the I-15 Express Lanes in San Diego County, California or other individuals whose PII was provided to Defendant. Defendant denies the allegations in the lawsuit.
- The Settlement covers the time period from January 19, 2018, to October 27, 2021.
- The Settlement offers eligible Settlement Class Members cash payments or penalty forgiveness as set forth below.
- Your legal rights are affected whether you act or do not act. Read The Notice carefully.
|Your Legal Rights and Options|
SUBMIT A CLAIM FORM
|You may submit a Claim Form seeking cash payment if you do not have penalties outstanding to SANDAG as of the Effective Date of the Settlement (see below).|
AUTOMATIC PENALTY FORGIVENESS
|If you have outstanding penalties for driving on the SANDAG Toll Roads as of the Effective Date of the Settlement (see below), you will receive automatic forgiveness of the lesser of your outstanding penalties and $60.00. In addition, you may receive additional forgiveness up to 100% of your outstanding penalties. You do not have to do anything to participate in the penalty forgiveness program; your account will automatically be credited if you are in the Class and do not exclude yourself from the Settlement.|
|Request to be excluded and get no benefits from the Settlement. This is the only option that allows you to start or continue your own lawsuit against the Defendant for the claims at issue in the Settlement to the extent they aren’t barred by applicable law or a prior Court ruling.|
|Write to the Court about why you do not like the Settlement.|
GO TO A HEARING
|Ask to speak in Court about the fairness of the Settlement.|
|You will not receive a cash payment but may still qualify for automatic forgiveness of penalties. If you do nothing, you will give up any rights you might have to sue the Defendant about the claims resolved by the Settlement.|
- These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in The Notice.
- The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the Settlement. If it does, and after any appeals are resolved, benefits will be distributed to those who submit qualifying claim forms or are found eligible for automatic forgiveness of penalties. Please be patient.
