ENDORSED LETTER addressed to Judge Denny Chin from Michael J. Boni dated 5/20/2009 re: We write on behalf of all the settling parties to inform the Court of our position on an issue raised by Your Honor's Order of April 24, 2009. That Order states that the proposed intervenors are "free to file objections to the proposed settlement or amicus briefs..." (emphasis added). While the April 24 Order does not expressly state that any proposed intervenors who are not also members of the Settlement Class have standing to object, out of an abundance of caution we write now only to state our position that those persons lack such standing. ENDORSEMENT: My 4/24/09 Order does not purport to bestow standing on any persons who do not have standing. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Denny Chin on 5/22/2009) (jmi) Modified on 5/27/2009 (jmi).
