Contents: Many nationwide class action suits and settlements have begun to place informative pages on the Internet in order to reach existing and potential members of the classes in question. Legal researchers will often find these sites useful for the legal documents and forms they contain. The Nationwide Class Action Settlement with American Home Products Corporation has posted the Diet Drug Claims Administrative Web Site, managed by the Interim Claims Administrators appointed by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. This site contains a summary of proposed settlement benefits, the class membersí guide, the settlement matrix for calculation of compensation benefits, the settlement agreement and all amendments to the agreement, the memorandum and pretrial order approving the class action settlement, and several useful forms for class members. The documents are mostly in PDF format. There is no search engine for the site, but there is an FAQ section.
