          SETTLEMENT ORDER AND FINAL JUDGMENT

          JANET T. NEFF JUDGE

         THIS MATTER came before the Court on Representative Plaintiffs' motion for final approval of the proposed class settlement (the “Settlement”). The Court has considered all papers filed and proceedings in this matter and is fully informed regarding the facts surrounding the proposed Settlement. Based upon this information, the Court has determined to approve the proposed Settlement as fair, reasonable, and adequate.
