The Court asked Mr. Bickford and James Williams to oversee the allocation of millions of dollars of damages among class members and the division of attorney fees among class counsel. This lawsuit is about whether lead present in HANO's public housing developments harmed the people who lived, stayed, or visited there. The lawsuit also said that many children who were exposed to lead developed learning, reading, growth, hearing, physical, cognitive, and behavioral problems, as well as permanent brain damage, and some possibly died as a result. The organizations and companies they sued are, HANO, C.J. Brown Property Management, Inc., C.J. Brown Public Housing, Inc., VentanaProperty Management, Inc., and Ventana Public Housing Management, Inc., and their insurance companies.
