Default Question for Attourney?

If in a class action law suit, from start to finish people die does the money from the dead people get dispursed amongst the living?

I'm in a class action suit thats been going on for 19yrs and I got a letter saying 8k people have died, since this started. My thoughts are, sorry to hear that can I have their money?

Is this a class action lawsuit against your 5th grade spelling teacher?

Their rights to the settlement would transfer to their heirs, if any. If not, they would probably be forfeited to the state as part of their estate.

No it was from when I was commercial fishing it started from the Exxon Oil spill against Exxon. It started in 1989 so 18yrs and everyone that fished from 89-93 I think is part of the suit, and I fished in 91-92

Just random shit over the past 18yrs. I think from my understanding when this started, they said if you want to join the class action suit, that it covers you so if someday 50yrs from now if a doctor says the reason you're dieing is because you have traces of crude oil in your blood, I will have already been covered.

My cousin who passed away was being paid from a class action suit. His future income went to where it was directed based on his will.
