Cy Pres

The term cy pres is derived from the Norman French phrase cy pres comme possible, meaning “as near as possible�. In a class action or mass tort settlement where it is not possible to directly distribute all of the money to the class or remaining balance of an award, a cy pres distribution to a nonprofit charitable organization whose work advances the public interest and indirectly benefits the class members is broadly accepted as the next best use (as near as possible) of the funds.

A cy pres award made to the Arizona Bar Foundation would support grants to organizations that provide services to adults and educate youth on a number of important legal issues such as individual rights, domestic violence, health care, veteran’s issues, education, elder law, employment
rights, housing and consumer fraud.
