    In early December I filled out an online form to get about $90 from the Iowa Microsoft lawsuit. I have not yet received anything from this. Has anyone else gotten anything?

    I filled out the online form shortly after I received the notice in the mail. I received my check in the mail shortly after they started mailing the checks.

    Nothing here. I moved since I filled it out, so I may not get the check...

    Filled mine out a few months ago and haven't gotten anything either.
    I did hear something on the news about it a few weeks ago, and i think they said all of the rebate checks should be delivered by the end of march or april. (i can't remember what month they said)

    I didn't feel great about it, but either I get it or the government does. And since they can't manage their money I figure I'd put it to better use.

    I was just talking to my wife about this this morning. Haven't seen a thing yet. I was also wondering when my $$$ from the DeBeers lawsuit was coming.

    Yeah, Debeers could potentailly be a nice chunk of change for me ... I don't think it closes until the end of March though, so it could be a while.

    That one is going to be a lot more, and we have even less of a chance of ever seeing anything on that one.

    From the diamond rebate FAQ page:

    "The Court will hold a hearing on the Settlement—called the “Fairness Hearingâ€￾—at 10:00 a.m. on April 14, 2008. The Fairness Hearing will be in Courtroom 8, United States Post Office & Courthouse Building, Federal Square, Newark, New Jersey 07101. At the Fairness Hearing, the Court will consider whether the Settlement is fair and adequate, and will listen to any supporting or objecting statements that are made about the Settlement. The Court will also consider the Class lawyers’ request for attorneys’ fees and reimbursement of expenses."

    So, not before the end of April at best. :sad:
