Welcome to the Honor Project

The Honor Project Trust is charged with the responsibility of distributing disgorged funds pursuant to the terms in the Court Order dated July 9, 2012 in case CV 07-633857.  The following three phases of distributions are intended to occur during the calendar years 2013-14.

Exhibit “A” Distributions:

The first phase of distributions began Fall, 2012.  Efforts were made by The Honor Project Trust to make contact with those specific entities identified by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office (AGO).   Distributions for Exhibit “A” were completed in December, 2013.

General Cy Pres Tier I and II Distributions:

Thank you for submitting your Application to The Honor Project Trust Cy Pres* Distribution.  Tier I Applications are closed.  The charities were selected and are in receipt of their checks.  Click here for a complete list of the recipients that were awarded funds from the Tier I distribution.

Tier II Applications are closed.   We will notify you via email or telephone if you have been selected as a recipient.  We anticipate completing the selection process sometime the end of summer, early fall, 2014.  For updates or further information, please check this website.  Thank you for your time and patience.

*Cy pres is a doctrine used in class actions to handle settlement monies which are unclaimed by class members after distribution is finished.  Cy pres means “as nearly as possible.” It allows the court—or the parties by agreement—to put a beneficial use to monies, where the payment as intended has not been made.
