I was able to obtain the incident report and photo via the Freedom of Information Act from the City of N.

October 22, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 8215 ORDER. Several of the filings concerning the parties' cross-motions to enforce their settlement agreement remain temporarily under seal. See 18-CV-2590, ECF Nos. 68, 86, 93, 74, 88. On October 20, 2020, New GM filed a letter-brief addressing what materials should remain permanently sealed or redacted. See ECF Nos. 99, 100. In light of the Second Circuit's recognition of the importance of confidentiality with respect to the public interest in promoting settlement, see, e.g., Gambale v. Deutsche Bank AG, 377 F.3d 133, 143 (2d Cir. 2004), the Court GRANTS New GM's application and agrees with the proposed redactions, substantially for the reasons stated in New GM's letter. Some of the materials at issue do not appear on the ECF system, as they were filed before the Court changed its procedures to enable filing of sealed documents on ECF. Other materials appear on the ECF system in unredacted form, but with restricted viewing access. To the extent that there are materials that have not yet been filed on the ECF system, or which appear on the ECF system only in unredacted form with restricted viewing acces, New GM shall file them in a manner consistent with its proposal and this Order within one week from the date of this Order. Put differently, within one week from the date of this Order, New GM shall ensure that the public filings in this matter are consistent with its proposal and this Order. In addition, there are two documents, 18-CV-2590, ECF Nos. 89, 94, which are temporarily under seal, but which New GM does not address in its letter and for which New GM does not propose redactions, yet which appear to contain the kinds of information including sensitive information and settlement discussions that New GM argues, and the Court agrees, should remain permanently redacted. New GM shall therefore file redacted versions of those documents (consistent with its redactions to the other documents) within one week from the date of this Order. SO ORDERED.

August 24, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 8123 ORDER, The Court just received the letter attached as Exhibit A, dated August 1, 2020, from Ms. Bhandari. In her letter, Ms. Bhandari notes that "I will start looking back into the case and finding a new attorney once I get [a COVID-19] vaccination." If Ms. Bhandari wishes to pursue this case, she cannot defer the filing of an amended and severed complaint until the distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine, as that date is uncertain and may be months, if not years, in the future. In light of Ms. Bhandari's apparent confusion over the requirements of the April 6 Order and her pro se status, however, the Court will grant Ms. Bhandari one final extension to September 21, 2020. If Ms. Bhandari fails to file an amended and severed complaint and to pay any associated filing fee by that date, New GM may file another notice that will result in Ms. Bhandari's dismissal without prejudice. To the extent that Ms. Bhandari's letter includes a "Petition for... transfer of case to Eastern Federal Court of Philadelphia," the Court construes that request as a motion to remand he case to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Ms. Bhandari provides no basis for that request, which is hereby DENIED. As a pro se litigant, Ms. Bhandari should send all communications by mail to the Pro Se Intake Unit, 40 Centre Street, Room 105, New York, NY 10007. New GM shall serve Ms. Bhandari with a copy of this order; the April 6 Order, ECF No. 7836; and the Court's order of July 10, 2020, ECF No. 8036, and shall file proof of such service no later than August 26, 2020.

August 10, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 8096 AMENDED OPINION AND ORDER. The Firms' motions are GRANTED in part and DENIED in part. In particular, the Court concludes that Order No. 42 applies to the Firms' clients' related unfiled claims and to state-court cases in which the Firms used Common Benefit Work Product, but it does not apply to state-court cases in which the Firms did not use Common Benefit Work Product. Further, the Court concludes that Order No. 42 is a permissible exercise of its inherent authority over this litigation and the parties and counsel appearing before it. Additionally, the Firms are ORDERED to review their files relating to each of their related state-court matters, including those not at issue here, to determine whether they used Common Benefit Work Product within the meaning of Order No. 42. No later than thirty days from the date of this Opinion and Order, each Firm must file an affidavit that (1) identifies its related state-court cases and (2) with respect to each, either confirms that the Firm did not use Common Benefit Work Product or concedes that it did. If the Court later concludes that a Firm incorrectly represented in its affidavit that it did not use Common Benefit Work Product, the Court will impose the assessment, plus appropriate sanctions. Finally, pursuant to Order No. 77, if Lead Counsel, the Firms, or New GM believe that sealed or redacted materials related to this motion should remain sealed or redacted, they shall file a letter brief regarding the propriety of doing so no later than one week from the date of this Opinion and Order.

July 21, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 8047 ORDER. Mr. Yagman's sixth motion for remand is DENIED, substantially for the same reasons that the Court denied his prior motions, see ECF No. 259 (denying remand request as premature); ECF No. 263 (same); ECF No. 270 (same); ECF No. 274 (same); ECF No. 287 (same); ECF No. 314 (same); see also ECF Nos. 264, 271, 281, 288, and for the additional reasons substantially stated in New GMs opposition. Most importantly, Mr. Yagman remains subject to Order Nos. 29 and 50, which allow a plaintiff to independently pursue economic loss claims only if no class is certified or if the plaintiff opts out of a certified class. See 14-MD-2543, ECF No. 875, at 1-2. Because the Court has neither certified nor refused to certify a class, Mr. Yagman's motion to remand is and remains premature. The Clerk of Court is directed to terminate 14-CV-9058, ECF No. 314. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Jesse M. Furman on 7/20/20) Filed In Associated Cases: 1:14-md-02543-JMF, 1:14-cv-09058-JMF (yv)

July 10, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 8036 ORDER OF DISMISSAL... In light of Mr. Green's failure to file an amended and severed complaint by the deadline set in the April 6 Order, his claims are hereby DISMISSED without prejudice. Per Paragraph 6 of the April 6 Order, should Mr. Green file an amended and severed complaint, a Related Case Statement, and a filing fee within the next thirty days, his dismissal will be vacated.

The Court declines, however, to dismiss Ms. Bhandari's claims at this time. Nevertheless, in light of the misunderstanding and Ms. Bhandari's apparent intent to continue pursuing her claims and out of an abundance of caution, mindful that Ms. Bhandari is now proceeding pro se the Court EXTENDS Ms. Bhandari's deadline to file an amended and severed complaint to thirty days from the date of this Order.

In light of the process set forth in the April 6 Order and above, the Clerk of Court should not terminate Mr. Green as a party at this time. The Court will direct the Clerk of Court to do so if or when Mr. Green claims are dismissed with prejudice. In accordance with the April 6 Order, New GM shall serve a copy of this Order on the Affected Plaintiffs and file proof of such service.

Evans, PLLC (collectively, the "Firms"); and not by Langdon & Emison LLC. Seel 7-CV-6273, ECF No. 1.

Finally, counsel should advise Ms. Martin that all communications with the Court should be through counsel.

June 26, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 8013 ORDER NO. 172: [Regarding Sealed and Redacted Filings]: The Court previously granted parties in this action permission to temporarily file documents under seal or in redacted form without first obtaining specific court approval and required that they contemporaneously file a notice that a document was filed under seal. ECF No. 4567 ("Order No. 133"). At the time that the Court issued Order No. 133, the Electronic Case Filing System in the Southern District of New York did not allow parties to restrict viewing access to a document filed on the docket, and it was therefore impossible for parties to file sealed or unredacted documents electronically. The Courts then-operative Individual Rules and Practices in Civil Cases therefore required parties to email unsealed and unredacted (clean and highlighted) versions of their filings to the Court. The Districts Electronic Case Filing System was recently changed to allow parties to restrict viewing access to documents filed on the docket, and the Court revised its Individual Rules and Practices in Civil Cases to reflect those changes. Going forward, parties should file any proposed sealed or redacted documents in accordance with Rules 7.C.ii-iv of the Court's Individual Rules and Practices in Civil Cases, which are available at https://nysd.uscourts.gov/hon-jesse-m-furman. For the reasons stated in Order No. 133, however, the parties may temporarily file documents under seal or in redacted form, and they therefore do not need to file a letter-motion seeking the Court's specific permission. Parties should link all sealed filings to this Order or to Order No. 133, in accordance with Rule 6.12 of the Electronic Case Filing Rules & Instructions, available at https://nysd.uscourts.gov/rules/ecf-related-instructions. In light of the fact that a docket entry for any sealed or redacted filings will appear on the docket, the parties also need not file a notice that a document was filed under seal. Except to the extent modified here, Order No. 133 remains in effect. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Jesse M. Furman on 6/26/2020) Filed In Associated Cases: 1:14-md-02543-JMF et al. (jca)
June 26, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 8012 ORDER: Today, the Court received an e-mail from Plaintiff Gail Martin, who voluntarily dismissed her claims on December 20, 2019, see 17-CV-6273, ECF No. 98, in which she appears to complain about the amount of her settlement and delay in payment (and makes some allegations about counsel's handling of the matter). The Court cannot and will not respond to Ms. Martin because she is represented by counsel and because it is inappropriate for the Court to communicate with an individual party, let alone to do so on an informal basis. No later than July 3, 2020, Ms. Martin's counsel which appears to be Langdon & Emison LLC shall provide a copy of this Order to her and file proof of such service. Further, counsel shall attempt to provide Ms. Martin with whatever assistance she needs (and, if appropriate, advise her that she may retain other counsel or proceed pro se, that is, without counsel). Finally, counsel should advise Ms. Martin that all communications with the Court should be through counsel. If Ms. Martin elects to proceed without counsel, communications should be mailed to the Pro Se Intake Unit, 40 Centre Street, Room 105, New York, NY 10007. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Jesse M.

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED AS FOLLOWS: The Court preliminarily approves the proposed Settlement Agreement, including the Allocation Decision, because the Parties have shown, and the Court concludes, that, pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(e)(1)(B)(i), the Court will likely be able to grant final approval and find that the Settlement Agreement is fair, reasonable, and adequate, including that (i) Plaintiffs and Plaintiffs' Class Counsel have adequately represented the Class, (ii) the Subclass representatives and Allocation Counsel have adequately represented their respective Subclasses, (iii) the Settlement Agreement was entered into in good faith, free of collusion, through significant arm's-length negotiations assisted by the experienced Court-Appointed Economic Loss Settlement Mediator; (iv) the Allocation Decision was reached through arms-length negotiations and presentations from Allocation Counsel and then determined by the Court-Appointed Economic Loss Settlement Mediator; (v) the relief provided for the Class and each Subclass is adequate taking into account the costs, risks, and delay of trial and appeal and the effectiveness of distributing relief; and (vi) the Settlement Agreement and Allocation Decision treat Class Members equitably relative to each other. The Court authorizes establishment of the Common Fund in accordance with the terms of the Qualified Settlement Fund Trust Agreement, which is attached to the Settlement Agreement as Exhibit 7. The Common Fund is established as a "qualified settlement fund" within the meaning of Section 468B of the Internal Revenue Code and the Treasury Regulations thereunder. The Common Fund shall be operated in a manner consistent with the rules of Treasury Regulation Section 1.468B-1, et seq. The Court shall retain continuing jurisdiction and supervision over the Common Fund, in accordance with the terms of the Qualified Settlement Fund Trust Agreement. The Court appoints Flora Bian of JND Legal Administration as Qualified Settlement Fund Administrator and Trustee to carry out all duties and responsibilities of the Qualified Settlement Fund Administrator and Trustee as specified in the Settlement Agreement, the Qualified Settlement Fund Trust Agreement and herein. The Parties and the Motors Liquidation Company Avoidance Action Trust (the "AAT") shall file an amended Settlement Agreement (the Amended Settlement Agreement), no later than May 1, 2020, which, in consideration for the AAT's agreement to contribute $2.2 million to the Common Fund, shall include a provision releasing all potential claims against Old GM, the Old GM bankruptcy estate and the AAT, and otherwise be consistent with (i) the terms set forth in that Joint Letter, dated April 22, 2020, filed at Docket Number 7869 and (ii) the representations made on the record at the Joint Hearing held on April 23, 2020 before the Honorable Jesse M. Furman and the Honorable Martin Glenn. For the avoidance of doubt, and consistent with the Order (I) Approving the GUC Trust Administrator's Actions; (II) Approving the Settlement Agreement and the Release Agreement Pursuant to Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9019 and (III) Authorizing Reallocation of GUC Trust Assets entered in the Bankruptcy Court (Dkt. 14730), any provisions in the Settlement Agreement preserving claims against Old GM, the Old GM bankruptcy estate and the AAT, including but not limited to paragraphs 142 and 143, are not preliminarily approved. The Court, for settlement purposes only, appoints the following Plaintiffs as interim class representatives for the Class as further set forth in this Order. The Court, for settlement purposes only, appoints the following Plaintiffs as interim representatives of each Subclass as further set forth in this Order. The Court appoints, for settlement purposes only, Steve W. Berman, of Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP and Elizabeth J.

Class Counsel are authorized to act on behalf of the Class with respect to all acts required by, or which may be given pursuant to, the Settlement Agreement or such other acts that are reasonably necessary to consummate the proposed Settlement set forth in the Settlement Agreement and as further set forth in this Order. The Court therefore approves the proposed Class Notice plan, and hereby directs that such notice be disseminated to Class Members in the manner set forth in the Settlement Agreement and described in the Declaration of the Class Action Settlement Administrator attached as Exhibit 14 to the Settlement Agreement under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(e)(1). The Plaintiffs, New GM, and the GUC Trust are directed to take all necessary and appropriate steps to disseminate Class Notice, including Notice substantially in the forms of amended Exhibits 5 (Long Form Notice), 11 (Short Form Notice), and 12 (Summary Settlement Notice) to the Settlement Agreement. The Parties are further directed to ensure the MDL website provides a link to the Settlement website. The Court appoints Jennifer Keough of JND Legal Administration ("JND") as Class Action Settlement Administrator and directs Ms. Keough to carry out all duties and responsibilities of the Class Action Settlement Administrator as specified in the Settlement Agreement and herein. The Court authorizes the Class Action Settlement Administrator, through data aggregators or otherwise, to request, obtain and utilize vehicle registration information from the Department of Motor Vehicles for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and all other United States territories and/or possessions for the purposes of identifying the identity of and contact information for purchasers and lessees of Subject Vehicles. Vehicle registration information includes, but is not limited to, owner/lessee name and address information, registration date, year, make, and model of the vehicle.

April 2, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 7839 MEMO ENDORSEMENT denying (55 in Mo 18-cv-02590) Motion for Permission for Electronic Case Filing. ENDORSEMENT: Because Plaintiff has not completed the necessary form, attached here, her application is DENIED. Plaintiff may re-file her motion with the required form completed. The Clerk of Court is directed to terminate ECF No. 55. This Order has been mailed to Plaintiff. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Jesse M. Furman on 4/2/20) Copy mailed by Chambers. (yv)
April 2, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 7832 ORDER OF DISMISSAL... Upon due consideration of the foregoing factors, the Court finds that dismissal with prejudice is the appropriate sanction for Ms. Clifton's failure to file an amended and severed complaint and pay the filing fee, as required by the November 25 Order. See ECF No. 7494, 3. Ms. Clifton has been on continual notice of the consequences of failing to file an amended and severed complaint, and have been repeatedly reminded over the past several months through the November 25 Order; New GM's First Notice of Non-Compliance, 14-MD-2543, ECF No. 7772; the Court's dismissal without prejudice of Ms. Clifton's claim, 14-MD-2543, ECF No. 7773; and New GM's current notice, 14-MD-2543, ECF No. 7826. Those efforts to inform Ms. Clifton of the consequences of her noncompliance with the November 25 Order have proved fruitless, leaving the Court with no "means to move this case forward efficiently without the cudgel of extreme sanctions," Baptiste v. Sommers, 768 F.3d 212, 219 (2d Cir. 2014). In light of the foregoing, Ms. Clifton's claim is hereby DISMISSED with prejudice. See In re World Trade Ctr. Disaster Site Litig., 722 F.3d at 487 (holding that "the court did not exceed the bounds of its discretion in dismissing the noncompliant plaintiffs' complaints"). The Clerk of Court is directed to terminate Jennifer Clifton as a party in 14-MD-2543 and 19-CV-6094, and, if there are no remaining plaintiffs in 19-CV-6094, to close that case. In accordance with the November 25 Order, New GM shall serve a copy of this Order on Ms. Clifton and file proof of such service. SO ORDERED., (Jennifer Clifton and Jennifer Clifton terminated.)

Should any Affected Plaintiff submit all required documentation within the next thirty days, or otherwise contest this dismissal, he or she may move to vacate the dismissal within 30 days of the date of this order, pursuant to Paragraph 25 of Order No. 25.

March 4, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 7789 ORDER NO. 167: Regarding Procedures and Schedule for Wave Four Targeted Discovery and Motion Practice and Additional Wave Pools to Address Remaining Personal Injury Claims -- Given the remarkable success of the "wave" process in this multidistrict litigation ("MDL") to date, the Court agrees with New GM that a Wave Four should be adopted to address the remaining personal injury and wrongful death claims (many of which were filed after the previous waves were adopted) and any new claims filed in the future. For good cause shown, the Court thus adopts the following schedule and procedures for Wave Four discovery of and motion practice regarding the remaining personal injury and wrongful death cases, as well any new claims that may be filed and consolidated going forward. That said, the Court is sympathetic to Lead Counsel's concerns regarding claims that have been pending in this MDL for a significant amount of time. See ECF No. 7783, at 3. To help ensure that such claims are advanced more quickly, with an eye toward settlement or remand, the Court would be open to adopting more "aggressive" procedures claims that were initially filed before January 1, 2017 (i.e., the first seven claims listed in ECF No. 7783-2), including but not limited to perhaps allowing "bilateral fact and expert discovery" for such claims. Id. at 5. Lead Counsel and counsel for New GM shall meet and confer to discuss the issue and, no later than March 13, 2020, submit an agreed-upon proposed order with respect to these claims or competing orders and letter briefs. Unless and until the Court adopts additional or different procedures for such claims, they shall be subject to the schedule and procedures set forth herein. (SEE ORDER.) (Signed by Judge Jesse M.
