ORDER APPROVING COMPROMISE OF MINORS' DISPUTED CLAIMS FOR PLAINTIFFS STEVEN ANTHONY VARGAS, JR., ANGELO ALECZANDER VARGAS, JOSE BLAS FIGUEROA, JR., HAILEY ROSE FIGUEROA, AND LEAH REALYNN GORTAREZ- ENRIQUEZ Action
Filed: April 5, 2010 Trial Date: December 6, 2011
It is hereby ordered that Plaintiff Julia Diane Enriquez's Petition to Approve Compromise of Disputed Claims for Minors Steven Anthony Vargas, Jr., Angelo Aleczander Vargas, Jose Blas Figueroa, Jr., Hailey Rose Figueroa, and Leah Realynn Gortarez-Enriquez is GRANTED.
The funds allocated to these minors from the settlement proceeds may be deposited into a Uniform Transfers to Minors Act ("UTMA") account and/or 529 Plan college fund with Fidelity Investments, with Julia Diane Enriquez serving as the trustee for the accounts.
The Court hereby authorizes Plaintiff Julia Diane Enriquez to withdraw up to $250 per year from the accounts of each of the five minor plaintiffs to help pay for clothing, without the need to apply to the Court for permission to do this. The Court finds that this is a modest sum and that it would be unreasonable to require Ms. Enriquez to apply to the Court annually for such funds.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
