Lawyers for people who lived at these places have talked to the government. They made an agreement to end the lawsuit without a trial. This agreement is called a settlement.
 
On April 25th, 2016, at 10 in the morning, the Court will decide if the settlement is fair and reasonable. You can go to Court on April 25.  
 
On that date, lawyers will tell the judge why they think he should approve the settlement.  If you do not think the settlement is fair, you may also be able to speak to the Court on that day.
