The United States, DFEH, and LSAC agreed to resolve the allegations through a negotiated consent decree rather than litigation. The United States District Court for the Northern District of California ordered the entry of the consent decree on May 29, 2014 (see press release).
Under the Consent Decree, LSAC has agreed to create a $6,730,000 nationwide Compensation Fund for individuals who requested accommodations on the LSAT between January 1, 2009 and May 20, 2014, and who are Eligible Persons under the Consent Decree. The amount of the payments to Eligible Persons will be determined by dividing the total Compensation Fund by the total number of Eligible Persons and will depend upon the number of people who file timely, valid, and approved Claim Forms & executed Releases.
SUBMIT A CLAIM FORM:
If you believe you are a potentially eligible person who may be entitled to compensation from a nationwide fund (“Compensation Fund”) established by the Consent Decree in this matter, to receive a payment from the Compensation Fund, you must file a Claim Form and executed Release during the Claims Period (September 19, 2014 – April 15, 2015).
The Claim Form and Release of Claims are now available. Please note that you can only access the Claim Form and Release of Claims with personalized claim and control numbers which are pre-printed on your Notice of Consent Decree Creating LSAC Nationwide Compensation Fund ("Notice"). You may receive a Notice from the LSAC Nationwide Compensation Fund Claims Administrator by e-mail and/or regular mail, or you may request that a Notice, Claim Form, and Release of Claims be mailed to you.
To request that a Notice, Claim Form, and Release of Claims be mailed to you, please follow the instructions below. You may then submit your completed Claim Form and Release of Claims by mail, fax, or e-mail. If submitted by mail, your Claim Form and Release of Claims must be postmarked on or before April 15, 2015, or your claim will be denied. If you submit your Claim Form and Release of claims by e-mail or fax, they must be received no later than April 15, 2015, or your claim will be denied.

- DO NOTHING:
If you do nothing, you will not receive payment from the Compensation Fund. Only individuals who timely submit completed claim forms and properly executed releases, and who otherwise meet the criteria set out in the Consent Decree, are eligible for payment.
