From the Glendale News-Press:

GLENDALE — Attorneys representing plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit against Grand View Memorial Park have announced a $3.8-million settlement agreement.

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge granted preliminary approval of the settlement until a fairness hearing is held and the plaintiffs have a chance to comment on the proposed agreement, according to court records.

“The biggest goal of the class action is to normalize the cemetery,” said Attorney Paul Ayers, who represents plaintiffs in the lawsuit. “When you talk to people, they are not really interested in the money, they are mostly interested in seeing the cemetery cleaned up and reopened, normalized and rehabilitated.”

Plaintiffs will be eligible for a portion of the $3.87 million in the proposed settlement, according to court records. A portion of any settlement cash will also go to the with attorneys, who could receive more than $1.1 million.
