2nd DCA Ruling IP: 126.96.36.199 Posted on March 4, 2014 at 10:37:16 AM by Fred Urbuteit
Many retiree,s who opted out of the class action suit still wonder why they would have to pay for the Attorney fees.
Attached is the 2nd DCA ruling and below is the Specific part of the ruling.
In my opinion NO RETIREE should have to pay the Attorney fees for a mistake they did not commit.
Had John Parker not sued when he did the Statue of Limitations would have ran out and NONE of us retirees would have received anything.
Lets hope that the Florida Supreme Court over turns the 2nd DCAs ruling.

The 2nd DCA ruled the Opt Outs must pay his fees. See attached 2nd DCA ruling.
See the sentence beginning at the very bottom of page 6 : "Although here some members of the group for which the fund is established have opted out of the litigation, it is equitable for them to contribute to the costs thereof because the litigation inures to their benefit."
That means all who benefitted, including the opt-outs, have to pay attorney fees unless the Florida Supreme Court rules in our favor of John Parker.
