Filing Deadlines

1. Deadlines to “register” a claim with the bankruptcy court

During the bankruptcy proceedings, claimants were required to file a Proof of Claim form. By Order of the bankruptcy court, the deadline to be considered “timely” was set as November 30, 1999.

Section 2.02 (b)(i) of Annex A to the Settlement Facility and Fund Distribution Agreement also established a process where claimants who had not filed a timely Proof of Claim but on whose behalf such a form was filed, could file a “Notice of Intent” form with the court. Section 2.02 (b)(iii) set the deadline as 90 days after the Effective Date of the Plan, which was June 1, 2004. Therefore, the deadline to file a Notice of Intent form was August 30, 2004

2. Deadlines to file Proof of Manufacturer and a claim for benefits with the Settlement Facility

All deadlines for timely claimants to file a claim for benefits are linked to the Effective Date of the Plan – June 1, 2004.
