Case No.: 15-CV-4519

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT, NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS

If you purchased a new Craftsman® Riding Lawn Tractor in 2009 thru 2015, you may be entitled to benefits from a class action settlement.

A federal court authorized the Notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

• A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Sears Holdings Corporation and Sears, Roebuck and Co. (collectively, “Sears” or the “Defendants”) regarding certain Craftsman® Riding Lawn Tractors.

• If you are included in the Settlement, you may qualify for one or more benefits including certain free inspections and repairs of your Craftsman® Riding Lawn Tractor’s fuel delivery system and/or a cash reimbursement for prior out-of-pocket repair expenses for certain past repairs. A list of model numbers covered by this settlement is available at www.CRLTsettlement.com. These models purchased between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2015 are referred to as “CRLTs” in the Notice.

Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act. Read the notice carefully.
