Miles Levin, et al. v. Board of Regents of the University of Colorado ,
Civil Action No. 2020CV31409

If you were enrolled in courses at any of the University’s campuses during the Spring 2020 semester at least through the census date applicable at your campus, were assessed tuition and/or fees for the Spring 2020 semester, and you were not enrolled for the Spring 2020 semester solely in a program that, at the beginning of the Spring 2020 semester, was intended to be delivered as an online program, then you are part of the proposed Settlement Class (a “Settlement Class Member”) affected by this lawsuit.

The purpose of this website is to inform you of a proposed Settlement relating to a class action lawsuit brought by Plaintiffs, students at the University during the Spring 2020 semester, against the University, on behalf of a putative class who paid tuition and fees for the Spring 2020 semester. The case is captioned Miles Levin, et al. v. Board of Regents of the University of Colorado , Civil Action No. 2020CV31409 (the “Action”).

In this Action, Plaintiffs alleged the University breached a contract when it transitioned to remote learning in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Plaintiffs also alleged that University of Colorado’s shift to remote learning gave rise to claims of unjust enrichment. Plaintiffs sought a partial refund of their tuition and fees for the Spring 2020 semester. The University denies all allegations of wrongdoing and there has been no finding of liability in any court. However, considering the interest of both the University and its students in prompt resolution of the matter, the University has agreed to establish a Settlement Fund to resolve the Action.

DO NOTHING You will be provided a payment distribution email to be sent to your last known email address on file with the University, wherein you will be provided with a number of digital payment options such as PayPal, Venmo, or a digital debit card, to immediately receive your Settlement Payment. You will also have the option to request a paper check be mailed using the address information on file with the University or as provided by you. If you do not elect a digital payment option, a paper check will be mailed to the address information on file with the University or as provided by you. See Answer 7.
EXCLUDE YOURSELF FROM THE PROPOSED SETTLEMENT You can choose to “opt out” of the proposed Settlement. Opting out means that you choose not to participate in the proposed Settlement. It also means that you cannot object to the proposed Settlement (see below). If you opt out, you will not receive a payment and you will keep any individual claims you may have against the University relating to the transition to remote learning in the Spring 2020 semester. For more detailed opt-out instructions, see Answer 11. Postmarked no later than June 5, 2023
OBJECT TO THE PROPOSED SETTLEMENT You can file an objection with the Court explaining why you believe the Court should reject the proposed Settlement. If your objection is overruled by the Court and the proposed Settlement is approved, then you would be included in the Settlement Class. If the Court agrees with your objection, then the proposed Settlement may not be approved. If you choose to object, you may not also opt out of the proposed Settlement, as only participating class members may object to a proposed Settlement. For more detailed objection instructions, see Answer 12. Postmarked no later than June 5, 2023
