KIMBALL HILL HOMES AND D.R. BOWLES PLUMBING SETTLEMENTS UPDATE:

Class Counsel reached tentative settlements with Kimball Hill Homes Nevada, Inc. and Kimball Hill, Inc. and D.R. Bowles Plumbing, LLC for hundreds of Kimball Hill-built homes. These are partial settlements and will not provide enough money to re-plumb the affected class homes. The settlements must still be approved by the Court and by the Class, which will take several months. The settlements may be appealed by other defendants in the case, which may substantially delay Class Counsel’s ability to use these funds for the benefit of affected class members. If the Court approves the settlements, and after all appeals are resolved for each settlement, including the Ipex settlement (see the Ipex Settlement link on the Home page), the funds will be combined to benefit the affected class members. For more information regarding the settlements and how they may affect your rights, please read the Notice of Preliminary Approval of Settlement and Fairness Hearing (“Kimball Hill”) and Notice of Preliminary Approval of Settlement and Fairness Hearing (“D.R. Bowles Plumbing”) documents posted in the Updates section of this website. If you have questions that cannot be answered by the Notices, you may contact our office at the telephone number provided on this website.

Class Counsel reached two additional settlements with Kimball Hill Homes Nevada, Inc., Kimball Hill, Inc., and D.R. Bowles Plumbing, LLC to provide more funding to benefit the Kimball Hill Subclass A members. The settlements were approved by the Court. The additional settlement funds recovered through these settlements will be combined with the funds previously recovered from these Defendants as well as the subclass’s pro-rata share of the Ipex settlement. The aggregated funds will be used to help pay for a portion of the costs to replumb the subclass homes. For more information regarding the settlements and how they may affect your rights, please read the Notice of Preliminary Approval of Settlement and Fairness Hearing (“Notice”) document posted in the Updates section of this website.
