Missouri Hannibal Water Settlement Notes

  • Oliver Latta, et al. v. Hannibal Board of Public Works, et al.
  • Case No. 16SL-CC01881
  • Pending in the Circuit Court of the County of St. Louis, State of Missouri

Four named plaintiffs brought this class action lawsuit against the City of Hannibal, Missouri and the Hannibal Board of Public Works regarding the quality of water between September 2011 and February 2016.

Specifically, the plaintiffs alleges that the Hannibal defendants was negligent in supplying water “unfit for human consumption” because the water contained elevated levels of total trihalomethanes, a disinfection byproduct used during that time below EPA allowable limites. Some studies indicate their is higher chance of certain cancers due to exposure of excessive levels of the byproduct.

Under the terms of the settlement, the Hannibal defendants will pay a minimum of $5 million for water quality improvements, including installing a carbon water filtration system (estimated at over $14 million). The settlement will also payout $205,000 in a fund for residents who consumed the water over a period of three years. Members of this Class will need to submit a claim for reimbursement of out-of-pocket costs for a urinalysis for blood and urine cytology.

Hannibal denies the allegations and denies any wrongdoing.. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Missouri Hannibal Water settlement website.

Estimated Award

Missouri CenturyLink Pure Broadband Internet Settlement Notes

  • Sanford v. CenturyTel of Missouri, LLC, d/b/a CenturyLink
  • Case No. 12BA-CV-4686
  • Pending in the Circuit Court of Boone County, State of Missouri

Plaintiff Kyle Sanford initiated this putative class action lawsuit alleging CenturyLink violated the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act when it sold a “Pure Broadband” package that, instead of consisting solely of broadband service, was bundled with a limited-use phone line.

Specifically, Sanford asserts that CenturyLink’s Pure Broadband wasn’t so pure because the company allegedly misrepresented and failed to disclose in its marketing and billing practices the true nature of the Pure Broadband package – that it include this limited-use phone line. This reportedly led to customers having to pay certain fees on the limited-use phone line, including a nationwide Universal Fund Surcharge, a Missouri Universal Service Fund Surcharge, a 911 Surcharge, and a Missouri Relay Surcharge that they actually never bargained for!

CenturyLink denies these allegations and any claims of wrongdoing but agreed to settle to avoid further litigation.

Under the terms of the Missouri CenturyLink Pure Broadband Internet Settlement, CenturyLink will pay $7.5 million, of which class counsel will ask the court to approve payment of up to one-third of the settlement amount for attorneys’ fees and expenses, and well as for a $15,000 incentive award to Sanford for his services as Class Representative.

If approved, the remaining funds will be distributed to Class members who submit valid and timely claims. It is estimated that Class members will recover about 83% of the federal and Missouri universal service charges billed to them for Pure Broadband for the duration they were a Pure Broadband customer. For example, a class member who was a Pure Broadband customer for ten months and was billed surcharges on the limited-use phone line averaging $1.00 per month would receive a settlement payment of about $8.30 (83% of $10.00). Under this same example, a class member who was a Pure Broadband customer for 30 months would receive a settlement payment of about $24.90 (83% of $30.00). (These are just estimates).

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the terms of the settlement must do so by December 26, 2017. Class members who wish to submit a claim must do so by March 8, 2018.


Important Dates

  • 3/8/18: Deadline to submit a claim form
  • 12/26/17: Deadline for Class members to exclude themselves or object to the settlement
  • 1/22/18: Final Approval Hearing at 9:00 am CT (class members do not need to attend this hearing in order to receive a slice of the settlement pie).
