IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE ELEVENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT
IN AND FOR MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA
CIRCUIT CIVIL DIVISION
CASE NO.: 2020-027233-CA-01
Jockey Club Condominium Apartments Inc. (The)
City of North Miami (The)
If You Paid Utility Bills Issued by the City of North Miami,
You May Be Able to Get Payments from a Proposed Class Action Settlement.
A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit involving water utility charges sent by or on behalf of The City of North Miami (the “City”). The case is The Jockey Club Condominium Apartments, Inc. v. The City of North Miami, Civil Action No. 2020-027233-CA- 01 (43) (the "Settlement"). The Plaintiff contends the City failed to follow its city ordinances in calculating water and sewer utility rates, charges, and fees; in particular, Plaintiff contends that City Ordinance No. 19-96 requires the City to calculate those rates, charges, and fees in a manner set forth in the ordinance that is more beneficial to a class of plaintiffs with multi-residence properties on a shared water meter, thus resulting in alleged overcharges by the City. The City denies Plaintiffs’ allegations, and the Court has not decided in favor of either party. The parties have agreed to settle to avoid the uncertainties and costs of litigation and trial. All persons or legal entities who received water and sewer utility invoices from or on behalf of the City between December 2016 and June 16, 2022, are members of what is called the "Settlement Class." A hearing will be held at 2:00 p.m. on October 31, 2022 in Room 416 at the Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Florida, 73 West Flagler Street, Miami, Florida 33130. If the Court approves the settlement, only those Settlement Class members who submit a valid and timely claim form will be entitled to receive Settlement benefits. If you do not wish to participate in the Settlement, you may exclude yourself from the class by mail or online. If you wish to object to the Settlement, you must file a written objection with the Court. If you do nothing, you will remain a Settlement Class member and you will release your claims against the City, but you will receive nothing. More information, including the deadlines for submitting Claim Forms, requests for exclusions and objections, and copies of the Settlement Agreement, Claim Form, a detailed Notice, and other important Court documents can be found at northmiamiwatersettlement.com.
