Their attorney's last email said: "My client will not go beyond $750.  You can be comfortable with opting out of any class action, but it will be a long time to wait."

I went ahead and replied with my next counter offer, but this was a week ago and I have not heard back yet. They were replying about every other day, but with the extended time since the last email I am starting to wonder if they really are no longer going to continue to attempt to settle.

I will give them another couple weeks, which is time I need to refine my complaint anyway, and if I hear no more from them I will file the suit.

Does anyone know how long the application for in forma pauperis takes?  I am going to file as pauper, but I believe I am on the cusp as to whether I would be approved or not, so I am not sure how that will go.

$750 is a fair offer for 3 calls from these clowns. While you might file and get IFP, they may (and probably will) join your case to other MDL and you will be waiting years for a less than $750.00 result.

+1

I would call the attorney and accept the offer.

As a final update to this thread, all I can say is that 'an amicable agreement has been reached between the parties'.     :drinking:

Thanks to everyone for all the valuable input.
