Statement on YDC Claims Administration and Settlement Fund

Concord, NH – New Hampshire Attorney General John M. Formella announces the following:

"We are pleased the Settlement Fund Process is working for victims. We can confirm that we have resolved the first claim at the maximum amount available under RSA 21-M:11-a of $1.5 million. We anticipate more and more frequent resolutions in the coming months as the process gains momentum," said Attorney General Formella.

We continue to believe that the YDC settlement fund provides a meaningful victim-centered, trauma informed alternative for those seeking to avoid lengthy and unpleasant litigation."
