    • A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit alleging that the defendants, forty niners football company llc; forty nine sc stadium company llc; forty niners stadium management company llc (collectively, the “forty-nine defendants”); the city of santa clara; and the Santa Clara Stadium Authority (collectively, the “Santa Clara Defendants”), discriminated against persons with mobility disabilities and their companions by denying them full and equal access to Levi’s Stadium due to access barriers in the stadium, its parking lots, the pedestrian access right of way that connects the parking lots to the stadium, and the services and amenities offered at the stadium.

    • The defendants deny the allegations in the lawsuit and maintain that they have provided full and equal access to people with disabilities and their companions. the settlement does not constitute any determination of the merits of the lawsuit or any admission by the defendants regarding the claims alleged in the lawsuit.

    • The settlement creates a “damages fund” of $24 million. If you are a member of the “damages class,” you may be entitled to monetary compensation from the settlement in this case.

    • The settlement also requires the defendants to make various modifications to Levi’s Stadium, its main parking lot, and the pedestrian right-of-way connecting the parking lots to the stadium to provide people with mobility disabilities, including those who use wheelchairs, scooters, canes, walkers and other mobility aids, with better access to the stadium and its services and amenities. such modifications include the provision of additional accessible parking adjacent to the stadium; an accessible travel route from the accessible parking lot to the stadium entrances and throughout the stadium; installing signage throughout the stadium directing individuals with mobility disabilities to the accessible route of travel, including elevators, for services and amenities provided in the stadium and accessible seating; the elimination of excessive slopes in accessible rest areas; the provision of integrated accessible seating in all dining rooms and bars; passenger seat upgrades; and the modification of service counters and box office windows necessary to allow access to the services provided in said places. The settlement also requires the defendants to make improvements to the stadium’s ticketing for accessible seating and transportation services. these improvements are called “injunctions”.

    • Members of all classes certified by the court will benefit from the access improvements that the defendants agreed to make as part of the settlement. they cannot opt ​​out of that part of the agreement, but they can object to it if they wish. however, damage class members may exclude themselves from that part of the settlement and retain any rights they may have to sue on their own. in that case, however, they will not receive monetary compensation in this case and cannot object to the damages portion of the settlement in this case.

    • The court must decide whether to approve the settlement. if you do, and after appeals are resolved, payments will be distributed to damage class members who file qualified claim forms. be patient.
