UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
CYNTHIA BROOKS, et al.,
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C-12-4935 EMC
U.S. BANK N.A.,
ORDER RE SUPPLEMENTAL
(Docket No. 48)
Currently pending before the Court is the lead plaintiff’s unopposed motion for preliminary
approval of a class action settlement. Having reviewed the papers submitted, the Court hereby
orders that the parties submit supplemental briefing and/or evidence to more thoroughly address the
first three Hanlon factors – (1) the strength of Plaintiffs’ case; (2) the risk, expense, complexity, and
likely duration of further litigation; and (3) the risk of maintaining class action status throughout the
trial – as these factors bear upon the Court’s preliminary determination of the substantive fairness of
the settlement, in addition to whether the Settlement Agreement falls with the “range of possible
approval.” Supplemental briefing is to be filed by 8:00 a.m., February 5, 2014.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: February 3, 2014
EDWARD M. CHEN
