August 13, 2010

VANESSA BROWNE AND PAUL MOORE, ON BEHALF OF THEMSELVES AND ALL OTHERS SIMILARLY SITUATED, PLAINTIFFS,
v.
AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO., INC., DEFENDANT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Margaret Morrow United States District Court Judge

Honorable Margaret M. Morrow

[PROPOSED] FINAL JUDGMENT

This matter came before the Court for hearing pursuant to the Order Granting Preliminary Approval of Class Settlement dated April 15, 2010, as amended by the Court's Order dated April 30, 2010, and on application of the parties for final approval of the parties' Settlement Agreement dated March 4, 2010, as modified by the Addendum to Master Settlement Agreement and Release, dated July 7, 2010, (jointly the "Settlement Agreement"), and the Court, having entered its Order Approving Final Settlement on July 29, 2010, IT IS HEREBY FURTHER ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED:

1. The Court hereby dismisses this action with prejudice and without costs, except as might be awarded in connection with Class Counsel's application for attorneys' fees and reimbursement of expenses, and for incentive awards to the named Plaintiffs ("Fee Application").

2. The Court shall consider the Fee Application separately from its consideration of the fairness, reasonableness, and adequacy of the Settlement Agreement. Any order or proceedings relating to the Fee Application, or any appeal from any order relating thereto or reversal or modification thereof, shall not disturb or affect this Judgment or affect or delay the finality of this Judgment.

3. Upon the Effective Date of the Settlement Agreement, the Plaintiffs and each Class Member shall be deemed to have, and by operation of this Judgment shall have, released, waived, and discharged all legal claims or causes of action that were, or could have been, asserted against Defendant and all released entities as set forth in the Settlement Agreement regarding the Class Vehicles' Rear Braking System as alleged in the Action. Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims for personal injuries, damage to property (other than to the Class Vehicle), and any claims of or rights to subrogation are not released, and the vehicle warranty, if any, shall remain in full force and effect.

4. Upon the Effective Date of the Settlement Agreement, Defendant shall be deemed to have, and by operation of this Judgment shall have, released, waived, and discharged any and all legal claims, cross-claims, counterclaims, or other causes of action pertaining to the Action and/or Settlement that were, or could have been, asserted against the Class Representatives or Class Counsel. Defendant recognizes that, even if they later discovers facts in addition to or different from those which they now know or believe to be true, they nevertheless agree that, upon entry of the Final Approval Order and accompanying Judgment, they fully, finally, and forever settle and release any and all of the Released Claims.

5. Attached to this Judgment as Exhibit 1 is a preliminary list setting forth the name of each person who has requested exclusion from the Class under the procedures set forth in the Preliminary Approval Order. In accordance with this Court's Order Approving Final Settlement, class members who exercised their right to opt out shall have until October 5, 2010 to opt back into the class. Thus, once the October 5 deadline has passed, the Court will amend this Judgment, if necessary, to remove from the list all individuals who have opted to participate in the settlement. After that amendment, all persons remaining on the exclusion list shall be neither entitled to benefits from the Settlement nor bound by this Judgment. All Class Members who have not submitted such an exclusion request, or who submitted such a request but withdrew it before the October 5 deadline, shall be bound by this Judgment.

6. Without affecting the finality of this Judgment in any way, this Court hereby retains continuing jurisdiction over (a) implementation of the Settlement; (b) further proceedings, if necessary, on applications for attorneys' fees, expenses, and costs in connection with the action and the settlement; and (c) the Parties and the Class Members for the purpose of construing, enforcing, and administering the Settlement Agreement and this Judgment.
