After months of negotiations, C&J's NYC Marathon class action suit is set to settle.

As part of the settlement, "New York Road Runners Inc. said it would cease holding the lotteries for three years," and "would issue credits, amounting to about $2.1 million, for racers who paid a fee to enter the lottery but were unable to race, along with some who paid the fee and were given the opportunity to race.reimburse some runners for the fees they paid to enter the lottery." Great work Phil and Bryson in resolving this case for your clients. Read more about the settlement here.
