In what appears to be the first such donation since the Supreme Court ordered all excess class action settlement funds to be donated to legal aid providers, lawyers at Feldman Shepherd have facilitated two donations of nearly $46,000 each to the state IOLTA board and a local public interest firm.
It has been nearly three years since the $600,000 class action settlement in Liss & Marion v. Recordex was approved by the state Supreme Court in favor of Feldman Shepherd’s clients, who claimed law firms were being overcharged for copies of client electronic medical records. Since that time, 6,387 class members received checks totaling nearly $450,000. A portion of those checks were not cashed, however, and $113,905 remained uncollected.
