NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (Nov. 19)—The New Jersey Superior Court has started notifying purchasers of tires made by Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. between Jan. 1, 1985, and Jan. 6, 2002 of their legal rights in the preliminary class action settlement involving Cooper. Those who still have the tires on their vehicles have until Jan. 15, 2002 to decide whether to remain in or opt out of the settlement. If they remain in, they are eligible for benefits that include either the Enhance Warranty Program, which includes a free replacement tire, or an alternative dispute resolution system for those who can document a tread separation on their tires. The hearing on final approval of the settlement is scheduled for Jan. 29.
