Barrett Business Services Securities Litigation


In re Barrett Business Services Securities Litigation, United States District Court, Western District of Washington at Tacoma,
Case No. C14-cv-5884 BHS.

A proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Defendants Barrett Business Services, Inc., Michael L. Elich and James D. Miller.

The Settlement, if approved by the Court, settles certain claims of all persons and entities who purchased or otherwise acquired the publicly traded common stock of Barrett common stock between February 12, 2013, and March 9, 2016, inclusive (the “Settlement Class Period”) and were allegedly damaged thereby.

This website is not an expression of any opinion by the Court concerning the merits of any claim in the Action, and the Court still has to decide whether to approve the Settlement. If the Court approves the Settlement and a plan of allocation, then payments to Authorized Claimants will be made after any appeals are resolved and after the completion of all claims processing. Please be patient, as this process can take some time to complete.

What Are My Options?
SUBMIT A CLAIM FORM. This is the only way to be potentially eligible to receive a payment from the Settlement Fund. You must submit a Proof of Claim and Release Form and all required documentation, postmarked no later than March 21, 2017.
EXCLUDE YOURSELF FROM THE CLASS. Receive no payment. This is the only option that allows you to ever be part of any other lawsuit against any of the Defendants or the other Defendants’ Releasees concerning the Released Plaintiffs’ Claims. Your exclusion request must be received by February 1, 2017.
OBJECT TO THE SETTLEMENT. Write to the Court and explain why you do not like the Settlement, the proposed Plan of Allocation, or the request for attorneys’ fees and reimbursement of expenses. You cannot object to the Settlement unless you are a Settlement Class Member and do not validly exclude yourself. Your objection must be filed and received February 1, 2017.
DO NOTHING. Receive no payment, remain a Settlement Class Member, give up your rights and be bound by any judgments or orders entered by the Court in the Action if it approves the Settlement, including the release of the Released Plaintiffs’ Claims against Defendants and Defendants’ Releasees.
