Indirect Parking Heater Settlement: How to File
- Class Members can file a claim online or by mail
- A Frequently Asked Questions list is available
- The Settlement Administrator can help with questions
Staying warm in their commercial vehicle is paramount for many drivers. But at what price? A class action lawsuit called the Parking Heaters Antitrust Litigation has recently come to settlement terms in hopes to resolve allegations that the Defendants conspired to fix the price of their parking heaters. On the other hand, the Defendants deny the allegations made by the Plaintiffs and the court has NOT determined which party right. In the end, it appears that neither argument will ever be heard at trial as both parties have agreed to the previously mentioned settlement. Those who believe they are eligible to receive a chunk of the $7.7 million settlement fund can begin by going to the online filing page and clicking the Claim Form tab.
