Drainage Impacted Landowners in the California Central Valley

Joining the Lawsuit

In the near future, we plan to ask the court to certify, or approve, this lawsuit as a class action. If this lawsuit is certified as a class action and you would like to become part of the Class, you must "opt-in" to the class action. Unlike other class actions you may be familiar with in which affected individuals become part of a class unless they "opt-out," lawsuits like this against the United States for compensation require potential class members to take an affirmative step to join.

If certified, we will separately provide notice of the lawsuit to all potential class members we can locate. The notice will include a timeline for joining the class action, as well as any additional informational requirements.

In the meantime, we invite you to provide us your contact information below to ensure we are able to contact you when the time comes, and to visit this website periodically to keep apprised of developments in the lawsuit.
