What happens to the claims of Diet Drug users' family members under the Seventh Amendment?
The Settlement Agreement provides benefits to eligible spouses, significant others and/or children of Diet Drug users, who are called Derivative Claimants. Under the Seventh Amendment, Derivative Claimants do not receive any portion of a $2,000 payment amount received by Category One Class Members who fail Medical Review, switch to Category Two, or fail to comply with the Fund Administrator's requirements. Nor do they receive a portion of the $2,000 payment to Category Two Class Members. Derivative Claimants of Category One Class Members who pass Medical Review will receive an aggregate 2% share of the Category One Class Member's benefit.
