UPDATE: Final Settlement Check payments are estimated to be issued by November 17, 2020 to Class Members with undisputed Class Structures and verified W-9s as of October 26, 2020.
If you own a home in the Mililani Mauka development in Mililani, Hawai‘i, you may qualify for a payment and your rights may be affected by a class action settlement.
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Castle & Cooke Homes Hawaii, Inc. (“Castle & Cooke”) about whether the high wind protection systems installed in Mililani Mauka homes are deficient or did not comply with applicable building codes.
You received the Notice because you may be part of the MM-Wind Class in this settlement. The “MM-Wind Class” or “MM-Wind Class Member(s)” includes all individual and entity homeowners—and all homeowners’ associations whose members consist of such individual and entity homeowners—who on the date of Final Order and Judgment own homes whose construction was completed on or after July 20, 2001 with wind protection systems in the housing development known as Mililani Mauka, located in the City and County of Honolulu, Island of Oahu.
If you are a member of the MM-Wind Class, you are eligible to receive a payment from this settlement. After the settlement is approved and becomes final, you will be mailed a Notice of final approval and a Form W-9. You will be required to complete and return the Form W-9 online or by mail to receive your settlement payment.
