If you are a Class Member, you could have objected to the Settlement if you did not like any part of it. You could have given reasons why you think the Court should not approve it. The Court would have then considered your view. To object, you needed to file or send a written objection to the Court by April 18, 2022, or you will be deemed to have waived all objections and shall be foreclosed from making any objection (whether in opposition to the motion for Preliminary Approval, motion for Final Approval, on appeal, or otherwise) to the Settlement.
The written objection needed to include the case name and number (Strohm, et al. v. Missouri-American Water Company, Case No. 16AE-CV01252), objecting party's name, signature, title, address, telephone number, a statement of each objection asserted, a detailed description of the facts underlying each objection, and a certification that the objecting party is a member of the Settlement Class.
You needed to file any objection with the Clerk of the Court at the address below by April 18, 2022:
Circuit Court of Platte County, Missouri
328 Main Street
Platte City, Missouri 64079
