Corvello v. Wells Fargo Bank
Jackmon v. America’s Servicing Company


IMPORTANT UPDATE: The Court has issued an order granting final approval to the Settlement, Final Order Approving Class Action Settlement As Modified. Settlement Class Members who cashed their initial distribution check before the stale date were mailed a second and final payment on July 3, 2018.

If you are a California residential mortgage borrower who (a) entered into a Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) Trial Period Plan with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. a/k/a America’s Servicing Company effective on or before March 1, 2010, and (b) made all of the scheduled trial payments, but (c) did not obtain a permanent HAMP modification as a result of that Trial Period Plan, you could get a payment from a class action settlement.

Summary of the Class Action Settlement

  • A Settlement has been proposed in related class action lawsuits against Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. (“Wells Fargo”) pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.
  • The proposed Settlement will provide each Class Member an equal share (on a per loan basis) of $750,000 in settlement of certain claims against Wells Fargo that the Court certified for class action treatment (the “Certified Claims”). As described in the notice, the per-loan payment would be approximately $65.45.
  • Your legal rights with respect to the Certified Claims are affected whether or not you act. Your rights with respect to non-Certified Claims are not affected. Please read the Notice carefully.
  • You are likely a “Class Member” if you meet the above criteria. If so, you should have received a notice of the Class Certification in this case last year. If you received notice by mail, it is because Wells Fargo’s records indicate you are a Class Member, and did not elect to exclude yourself from the Class last year. However, under the proposed Settlement, you have another opportunity to exclude yourself from the Class, as set forth below.

DO NOTHING Stay in this lawsuit and automatically get a payment in settlement of the Certified Claims (if the Settlement is approved and becomes Final). The Settlement does not require you to submit a claim in order to receive a payment. Give up your rights to sue or continue suing Wells Fargo on your own regarding the Certified Claims.
ASK TO BE EXCLUDED Get no payment. Keep rights to file your own lawsuit (or continue to pursue an existing lawsuit) against Wells Fargo regarding the Certified Claims.
OBJECT Write to the Court about why you do not like the Settlement.
ATTEND A HEARING Ask to speak to the Court about the fairness of the Settlement at the Fairness Hearing, which is set for November 30, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. Any change to the date, time and location of the Fairness Hearing will be published on this website.

  • These rights and options, and the deadlines to exercise them, are explained in this Notice.
  • Settlement Payments will be made if the Court finally approves the Settlement and after any appeals are finally resolved and the Settlement becomes Final. Please be patient. It may be some time before the Settlement becomes Final.
