The US District Court for the District of Columbia has ordered November 27, 2017 as the final deadline for Class Members in the Cobell Settlement or their heirs to submit documentation to Garden City Group, LLC (“GCG”), the Claims Administrator, so that payments can be made. All documentation must be received or postmarked by November 27, 2017. The Court made one exception to this deadline – Estates of deceased Class Members which are still pending at the U.S. Department of Interior’s Office of Hearing and Appeals (“OHA”) at that time will have funds held to be distributed once the probate process at OHA is complete.
