Well I spoke to my uncle today & another lawyer. We need to write to lawyers for the plaintiffs,they are the only ones who can ask for an injunction to keep Menu from destroying evidence. Anyone in a lawsuit of any kind, or who had a problem with a food made by Menu can write. I'm having trouble finding all the lawyers. This site lists some,but we will have to look up contact info on our own. The only 1 I could find a name & location for is Michael Ferrara,Cherry Hill NJ. Here's the site,you have to scroll all the way down to find the lawyers[none of the ones after 9/2007 list them] http://dockets.justia.com/search?q=Menu+FOODS%2C+INC..Even if we all write to 1 it could make a difference,remember not much time left.

Don, I will have him look at it, but he said the judge is under no obligation to even read letters not from someone involved in the case. It would probably be up to what his clerks decided to do with them.

If the class actions about to settle are for compensatory damages, it looks like your only other option is to opt-out.

Know your rights in a class action settlement:

Some very informative links here:
http://classactionlitigation.com/faq.html

Can I be bound by a settlement or judgment of a class action?
Yes. If the constitutional and procedural protections required for fairness are met in the underlying action, all absent class members are bound to the judgment or settlement of the case. However, if the action is primarily for compensatory damages, absent class members are entitled to notice and an opportunity to "opt-out" (exclude themselves) from the proceedings. If a person opts-out, he is not bound by any judgment or settlement of the class action. In the event a class action is for declaratory or injunctive relief, notice is not required to bind absent class members and the court may not allow your to opt-out.

Some general comments about class actions here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Class_action#Federal_class_actions

[edit] Federal class actions
In the United States federal courts, class actions are governed by Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 23 and 28 U.S.C.A. ยง 1332 (d).
