The Legal Aid Foundation of Colorado’s mission of improving access to civil justice for those who might otherwise be unable to access the court system makes it an ideal candidate for class action cy pres awards.
What is Cy Pres?
Cy pres awards are funds in class action cases that, for a variety of reasons, cannot be distributed to class members or beneficiaries who were the intended recipients. Under the cy pres doctrine, courts can distribute these residual funds to appropriate charitable causes.
How Can You Help?
If you are involved in a class action case and are unable to distribute all the funds, consider the Legal Aid Foundation as a cy pres recipient.
