`FOR THE Northern District of Illinois − CM/ECF LIVE, Ver 6.3.3
`Eastern Division
`Kayla Quarles
`Pret A Manger (USA) Limited
`Case No.: 1:20−cv−07179
`Honorable Manish S. Shah
`This docket entry was made by the Clerk on Thursday, January 13, 2022:
` MINUTE entry before the Honorable Manish S. Shah: The motion for excess
`pages and the motion for preliminary approval [43] [44] are granted. The settlement
`appears to be a reasonable compromise of a complicated case with risk on both sides, and
`the parties reached the agreement after adversarial litigation and arm's length negotiation
`with the assistance of a neutral mediator. The expected relief to class members provides
`monetary relief that well compensates class members for an alleged injury that likely
`caused no tangible harm. The attorneys' fees expected are high but within the range of
`approval and do not detract from the value received by class members. The requirements
`of class certification for settlement have all been met and the counsel and named plaintiff
`are adequate representatives. A final approval hearing is set for May 4, 2022 at 12:30
`p.m., by telephone. Members of the public, media, and parties to the case may
`listen/participate in these proceedings by dialing 1−888−204−5984 and using access code
`9146677. Persons granted remote access to proceedings are reminded of the general
`prohibition against photographing, recording, and rebroadcasting of court proceedings.
`Violation of these prohibitions may result in sanctions, including removal of court issued
`media credentials, restricted entry to future hearings, denial of entry to future hearings, or
`any other sanctions deemed necessary by the Court. The parties shall submit a revised
`proposed order of preliminary approval with the dates certain for the necessary deadlines
`in Microsoft Word format to Notices mailed.
